Storyline

After a mixup at the check-in, Aimo Niemi boards a charter plane bound for the sunny island of Rhodes, Greece, instead of the Innsbruck Winter Olympics he's packed for. It's the early days of package tourism, and he is too shy and clueless to really sort out any of his problems -- a suitcase filled with women's clothes, a flirtatious female roommate, and no money to buy food since he was prepared for full room & board in Austria. Other characters represent (stereo)typical Finns from different walks of life, most of them on their first beach holiday just like Aimo (to whom even the boiled eggs in the hotel breakfast room are enough to cause a daily culture shock). Written by Markku Kuoppamäki
