Storyline

Little Esa is a talented floor ball player who is worshiped by his father. After a well-played game, Esa accidentally bumps into Elvis. The singer instantly becomes Esa's one and only idol. Decades later, Little Esa has turned into Big Esa, an overweight middle-aged man forsaken by his father. Sports has become a source of deep shame and frustration for Esa, who now preaches his own personal philosophy which can be best described by the phrase "lard is a blessing." Things quickly change when Esa's own son decides that he wants to be a floor ball player. Esa is forced to participate in the traditional Father-Son Game at his son's Floorball Club. In the game, he has to face his feelings of shame and also come to terms with his father who despises him. In the struggle, Esa has only two things going for him: his love of lard and fatness and the magical Elvis who speaks to him through an album cover. Written by Teppo Airaksinen and Antti Heikki Pesonen
