Storyline

A drama between people under unconventional circumstances. In the Second World War Finland was the only nation who brought casualties killed-in-action back to be buried at home. These actions were carried out by men and women working in assembly centres near enemy lines. Silence is a story of a group of people in a limbo between life and death, and a mental no-man's-land, where Heaven and Hell, horror and joy, love and fear touch each other.
