  • Kaksi ruumista rannalla

A woman wakes up on a beach wrapped in plastic, half-naked and wearing high heels. “Not again,” she sighs and decides to find out who is behind this. She persuades an older woman pushed to society’ margins to accompany her on her revenge crusade. On their journey across classic cinematic landscapes, the two women have to face their own desires, generational conflicts and their fragile ideologies.
