A carnival-esque portrayal of the Finnish landscape of the soul and abode. This short film is based on the iconic YLE programme People's Radio, and its visual material uses the road movie genre of driving across summery Finland. The film paints a panorama of what Finland looks like today. Its narration progresses through humour into civic anarchy and ultimately also towards a longing for human connection.
