Movie Info

Leevi returns from Paris for a summer holiday in Finland to help her distant, super-conservative father in a summer cottage renovation. In addition to Levi, a syrian refugee Tareq has been recruited as a helper. When Leev's father is going to go to town to work, young men find each other, and a deep link between them lies in the silence and freedom of the middle ages.
