Movie synopsis: The film, made as a Finnish-Czech coproduction, is an unusual comedy about the Cold War. The story is set in 1962 when the World Youth Festival takes place in Helsinki. Jan (Miroslav Etzler) is a musician coming to the festival where he meets his old friend, Elsa, who thought he was already dead. Elsa keeps her distance from the newly found relationship at first, but she gradually succumbs to it, especially thanks to Jan's effort to get closer again. Elsa is played by Kati Outinen, familiar to Czech viewers from Aki Kaurismäki's films. Krystof Hadek and Jan Budar appear in supporting roles.
