Baby Girl, 30, a poet with a bachelor's degree in arts, is anguished because of her relationship with Pirkka, a relatively smart, young man. Baby Girl's parents, Eila and Rampe, do their best to become friends with Pirkka and his elegant mother. Through coincidence and error Eila occupies her summerhouse neighbors' empty luxury villa. When Pirkka's mother drops by, Eila lies that she and Rampe own the fancy house. Baby Girl is mortified by her parents' presence and, as she attempts to cope with that, she tries to find a way to break up with her boyfriend once and for all. Lies and misunderstandings follow one another. The Japanese translator of Baby Girl's poems soon arrives on the scene and, as the only person with a grasp on the events, she believes they, together with the Finnish languages and Nordic landscape and lifestyle, make a beautiful and idyllic story.
