"A stranger in town is robbed, beaten and left for dead. He can’t remember his past, and has to start again.
Markku Peltola plays the newcomer who experiences the comfort of strangers and makes his home in a shipping container. Kati Outinen is a member of the Salvation Army who becomes his companion. He also adopts a supposedly savage dog named Hannibal and encourages the Army’s band to play rock ‘n’ roll. In other words, all the Kaurismaki themes combine in this delightfully optimistic, serenely graceful, film.” Program text - David Stratton
