The sequel to the hugely popular book and film, Let Him Be a Basketball Player 2 features new humorous adventures of Ranta, a boy so tall he could be tying ties to giraffes. Everything seems to be going well for him, until his easy, early summer weeks are shaken up by unanticipated schoolwork, troubles on the romantic front, and problems in basketball. Ranta will need to figure some things out by himself and do some growing up.

The main challenge in making the film was how to capture the magical youthful energy that comes with the ups and downs of growing up. We wanted the audience of all ages to come out of the cinema with a smile on their faces and a warm feeling in their hearts, richer for a new experience.
