From a promising new talent in Finnish cinema, Juho Kuosmanen, comes this offbeat road movie about love, art and commerce, and almost everything existential in between. It's almost Christmas but Toni, Luukkonen, and Emppu are still on the road. Their products don't sell, the car is a wreck and the weather is freezing. Moreover, there is another problem arising among them: how to cope with an emerging friendship. Winner of first prize at the prestigious Cinefondation awards at the 2010 Cannes Film Festival. English sub-titles.
