1918, the Finnish civil war. Red socialists and White bourgeois. Prisoner of the Whites, Red guard troop leader Miina Malin, manages to escape only to be recaptured by jaeger Aaro Harjula. Against the general consensus, he does not wish for her senseless murder but for her to have a fair trail. The meeting of Aaro and Miina binds two strong human stories together and sparks an edgy love theme in the midst of the horrors of the civil war.
