Cherry Tobacco is a drama about falling in love for the first time. Laura is a small town 17-year old girl who is constantly bored. Her mother gets on her nerves, boys her age are stupid, and everything seems sooo childish. One day Laura’s lively friend Merit asks her to join a hike to a bog led by a middle-aged nature-lover called Joosep. The beginning of the trip is anything but promising: the relationship between the reserved girl and the outgoing Joosep, who tries to impress the hiking party with his hill- billy style and bizarre rituals, becomes tense. Much to her own surprise, Laura discovers that as the hike continues she is drawn to the rugged charm of Joosep. As the adventure comes to its irrefutable end, Laura has to decide whether the relationship with an older man is just a bump in the winding road towards womanhood or whether it is actually her very first love.
