3. Raspberry Boat Refugee / Dir:Leif Lindblom / 2014 / 94 m (04.04.16 | 6.30 PM)
Ever since a childhood holiday in Sweden, Mikko has been clinging to memories of a place where nothing bad ever happens and sweets like raspberry boat candies have a magical aura. However, his passion for Saab and Volvo and his Swedish-flag-decorated clogs don’t sit well with other Finns, let alone his father. Upon meeting a suicidal Swedish psychologist he seizes an opportunity for an identity switch, but in doing so, he becomes saddled with a senile mother, innumerable cultural traps, and an angry, beautiful sister who awakes more than brotherly feelings in Mikko!
