Storyline

Arno Jurmala is an appreciated nickel tycoon. He has an elegant wife and he owns a huge nickel factory somewhere in Northern Finland. When he is celebrating his birthday in the late 30s, the guest list consists of significant people from different countries all over the world. What they don't know is that behind the neat facade Jurmala is a ruthless man without any morals or virtues. He does anything to make more money. Without hesitating he kills his worst competitors and all his employees who have let him disappointed. And when the second world war begins he trades with Natzi-Germany and Soviet Union -depending on that who is winning at the time. He also mishandles his wife who is unable to have children. That has driven her to become a drug-addict. Written by Rolf Pavian
