Fallen Leaves

Ansa (Alma Pöysti) works at a supermarket, where the job is so badly paid that she takes home expired sandwiches for dinner. Holappa (Jussi Vatanen) is a metalworker, labouring in a job so hazardous he's sure it will kill him, so he drinks through the day, and then again at night. Meanwhile, the radio constantly carries news about the nearby war in Ukraine.

One evening, against his will, Holappa is dragged to a karaoke bar by a friend. "Tough guys don't sing," he says. But karaoke night is also a night for romance, and when Holappa meets the shy Ansa, there's an immediate spark. But life being what it is, a variety of obstacles conspire to get in the way.
