Finnlandia

Finnlandia

After the tragic loss of her husband, a young woman reconstructs the circumstances which caused his death. During this attempt to find her own way in daily life again, more and more recollections and occurrences appear on the surface, seemingly to foresee a tragic end. Looking back, events appear to her like signs, chance meetings like disregarded warnings. On her search for meaning between yesterday and tomorrow, reality seems to split like a labyrinth, like an awakening after a nightmare, with no way out.
