Tomi has always wanted to be a monster. His childhood dream came true. As the frontman of the heavymetal band Lordi, he won the prestigious Eurovision award in his monstrous costume as the very first competitor from Finland. Several years later, the fame has fizzled out and the band has ended up in debts, but Tomi keeps fighting for Lordi with all his might and ugliness. The portrait of the eccentric musician won an award at the Austin IFF.
