Released on parole after a lengthy time in prison, Eeva’s first instinct is to track down her estranged daughter, who was a child when she was sentenced. Returning to the small town where she previously resided, Eeva finds many there who are affronted by her presence. Only Kalle, who runs a cleaning company, is willing to give her a break. Jaana Saarinen’s unflattering role as the obdurate and reticent Eeva turns what is on the surface a straightforward tale of guilt and reconciliation into a bruised portrait of loss and longing. DOM
