On arrival In Helsinki a man gets beaten up. He cannot remember who he is or anything of his past. Unable to get a job or anywhere to live he starts living on the outskirts of the city. Taken in by the locals, he makes new friendships and forms new relationships and slowly starts putting his life back together. This is a film that almost defies description. It mixes great humour with sickening violence, wretchedness with compassion, and has characters that are somehow totally real yet completely absurd. A film that you should not miss. Unique.
