Cast: Jarkko Lahti, Oona Airola, Eero Milonoff, Joonas Saartamo.
Shot on 16mm, cast in splendid cinematic monochrome and perfectly soundtracked, Juho Kuosmanen's bittersweet charmer is the story of 1960s boxer Olli Mäki (Jarkko Lahti). Swept to national stardom as he trains and prepares for a World Featherweight Title bout against the American champ, quiet smalltown Mäki's mind veers sharply away from drills and conditioning when he begins to fall for Raija (Oona Airola). With the hopes of an entire country going toe-to-toe with the feelings in his heart, there can be only one winner.
