A documentary film about a tour of three Finnish rock bands around Saimaa lake system in a steam boat in 1981. The bands (Juice Leskinen Slam, Eppu Normaali and Hassisen Kone) are shown playing songs in their gigs and, in between, the members give intimate interviews or just act plain silly and have a good time.

Best way to see all great bands in Finland that time
The movie "Saimaa-Ilmiö" goes deep to Finnish rock-culture and artists behind the swing. Later all bands playing in the movie as kind of young rebels, has been continuing making their art and most of them are today legends or superstars in genre of Finland. Movie has one other function lovely for my opinion. Men are sailing over biggest lake of Finland, they are drinking a little bit of beer, having sauna and so on. They are laughing, telling dirty and simple jokes, sitting quietly and speaking nothing. They are like ordinary Finnish men, only difference is the art of making touching music and make people laugh or cry with them. See it feel it and love it.
