Provoked by his father's shocking suicide, laconic coal miner Taisto (Turo Pajala) decides to leave his provincial, humdrum life behind and embark on an unpredictable journey of self-discovery. Regarded as one of internationally acclaimed director Aki Kaurismaki's finest films, this deliberately paced tale blends satire, film noir and experimentalism to create a wry commentary on the triviality of human existence.
