    • Synopsis
    • After a scandalous premier, actress Leila Manner (Elina Knihtiä) flees with her two sons Ilmari (Samuli Niittymäki) and Unto (Eetu Julin) the reporters to the family’s old summer villa. Their peaceful time together is soon interrupted when Leila invites a group of her friends over to spend the weekend. When the other guests leave, Aimo (Eero Aho) stays. Short-tempered Ilmari is not pleased with the intruder, although Leila assures him that Aimo is nothing like her previous men. Gradually, Aimo starts to have enough of the youngster’s insolence. Ilmari tries to escape the situation in the company of the fascinating Karitathe weird waitress at the local pub, and Leila, who is in love, turns a blind eye. The atmosphere at the villa surrounded by woods becomes threatening.
