Storyline

Drug dealer Aki is taken to hospital after a violent attack where he loses his merchandise and money. One of the paramedics, old Eino, befriends Aki later in the hospital and offers him a summer job after hearing that he has training in first aid. Eino even offers Aki a place to stay next to his ambulance garage. This provides Aki a perfect hiding place from his former employers who are after him. At the garage, Aki learns about life and the art of archery from peaceful Eino, and falls in love with Eino's daughter Lena who works at the ambulance switchboard. But no hiding place is good enough to last forever. Written by Markku Kuoppamäki
