    • Synopsis
    • This film and TV series is set in Helsinki, spanning the times of rising nationalism during the first World War, the consequent Finnish civil war, the emerging 'modernity' of the 1920s, and the height of the fascist Lapua Movement in the early 1930s. A love triangle between Lucie, an upper class girl, and Eccu a young middle class man and Allu a young working class man and socialist, takes center stage. Decisions taken in adolescence dictate the course of their lives, and all must face the consequences of their actions as they strive for atonement. In the end the story is also a declaration of love: a declaration of love to the memory of the people we once were, and the grounds where we once walked. (Based on Kjell Westö’s award winning novel and true historical events.)
      Also available as a TV miniseries 6 x 52min.
