Balancing between a failed relationship, uninspiring studies and financial problems, the headstrong textile student Irina finds herself stuck in the modern rat race. To overcome her problems she decides to accept an unexpected summer job offer at the secluded and self-sufficient village of Kyrsya. As Irina begins to get a grip of herself in the middle of the endless Finnish forest, the harmless and offbeat hillbillies begin to reveal their true nature.
There's suppose to be a bit of dark humor in this, but if this is Finnish humor then those long winters have frozen some brain cells (that or along w/this script the Finns have cold dark isolated community incest problems). Not sure if there is a point to the story - urban girl is unlucky w/work, boyfriend etc. & takes an internship at an isolated supposedly textile community. Well, inbreeding has made them a little "quite-not-there-mentally". The textiles turn out to be little pompoms, and her invite may have more to do w/fresh breeding stock. Acting was over-the-top exaggerated; dialogue weak; subtitling to English was really bad making it difficult to understand what's going on.
