Rude Boys

A Film by Ken Hagen-Takenaka

Synopsis

Despite his friend Murat’s advice, Adam (played by Adam Bousdoukos) plans to take part in a triathlon, although he is not exactly a superjock. He´s actually a total slacker. Of course, Murat (played by Murat Arslan) is more or less right and the day does not go as planned.. Director Ken Hagen Takenaka mixes live action scenes and animation to create an entertaining short comedy, that is actually based on a true story!
