Sheer coincidence brings them together at a hot dog stand. Aurora is a party girl and Darian is an Iranian refugee. Aurora is in desperate need of money, so she agrees to help the single father find a woman to marry so that he can stay in Finnish Lapland. But Aurora is no more capable of getting Darian married than she is at getting her own life under control. But then again, maybe she doesn't really want him to...? In Miia Tervo's romantic comedy, the debut director merges the European refugee problem with regional flair. Straightforward dialogue and self-ironic allusions to the cultural and characteristic idiosyncrasies of Finland's far north make the intercultural encounter amidst frosty temperatures a heartwarming pleasure.
