A comedy about Janne, a man from Lapland in Northern Finland, a man who has made a career out of living on welfare. Inari, his girlfriend, is tired of Janne's incapability of getting a grip on life. Janne wasn't even able to buy a digital TV box that Inari had given money for. Inari gives an ultimatum: a digital box needs to arrive by dawn or she leaves. Janne sets out into the night with his two friends to find a box. On their way to the city of Rovaniemi, Janne and his friends face many challenges, obstacles and temptations. They learn that they need to be daring. There's no room to give into bitterness. The most important thing isn't success, but rather the journey in itself.

This is a great movie. Very well acted and cleverly written. It might be a bit racy for some people but it's certainly worth watching.

Give it a try.

Very cool Nordic movie, loads of cultural tidbits that are rewarding to see. It is funny and very real.

I absolutley adored this movie. I laughed out loud more times than I can remember. Amazing how it was set almost entirely at night...reminded me of when I lived in Alaska. Very archetypal characters.....but they all worked so well...I will rent again.. 5 stars from me

Maybe because I have a dark side, but I laughed out-loud on at least a few occasions. I can't imagine how twisted I'd be if I lived that close to the Arctic circle; crazy Finns.
