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.
