A carnivalesque portrayal of the Finnish landscape. The film is based on the iconic YLE programme “People’s Radio” and in the form of a road film evokes the panorama of today’s Finland driving across its sunny landscapes. Its narration progresses into civic anarchy and ultimately into a longing for a human connection.
