Leevi returns home to Finland to help his estranged father renovate their summer cottage. To help them with the work, his father hires Tareq, a Syrian asylum seeker. When the two are left alone for a few days, they get to know each other intimately. First time director Mikko Makela captures the splendour of a Finnish midsummer and the rush of an intense love affair. This summer romance is a feat of Finnish cinema.
