Original title: A Moment in the Reeds

A Moment in the Reeds

Leevi has reluctantly returned to his Finnish hometown to help with the renovation of the family’s worn summerhouse. The relationship between Leevi and his father Jouko is very tense and the surrounding woodland becomes more and more claustrophobic. When the young Syrian architect Tareq arrives to help out with the summerhouse, an irresistible spark ignites between him and Leevi. With an equally trem-bling and quiet intensity, feature debuting Mikko Makela portrays a tender love meeting between two young men who in different ways tries to find their place in the world.
