When a mysterious stranger arrives at a small café in a remote Finnish village, accompanied by his son, he is looking for something – or somebody – but nobody can understand what. Unable to speak the language, he manages a few words in English with the locals, but all in vain. Taking pity on him, the owner, Sirkka, finds a place where he and his young son can stay, but it is only when he volunteers his services as a cook that the real transformation begins, and it is one that will have a profound effect on the entire village.
Tom Stewart, Acquisitions Director at Parkland Entertainment says: “We are thrilled to be bringing this heart-warming tale that’s a timely reminder of the simple pleasures of life!”
