Synopsis 

Three men, who all have something to hide, share a cabin on a northbound night train. Dominick is an undocumented African immigrant, Jere is caught up in criminal activity and Aleksi is a psychiatric patient running away. While Jere and Dominick just want to make it to their destination in silence, Aleksi starts causing commotion. A violent confrontation ensues, which leads to his accidental death. 

 

Jere and Dominick make a difficult decision -to dump the body and pretend it didn’t happen. They part ways in northern Finland, but they aren’t finished with each other yet. 

 

Through circumstance, the men fall in with Aleksi’s ex wife, the beautiful Vera, and her small daughter. With the help of Vera, Dominick attempts, but fails, to escape Finland and Jere, who is starting to fall in love with Vera, becomes increasingly paranoid about what they have done. Both men seek to gain Vera’s trust but struggle with everything they are hiding. The truth will out, but how will the men come to terms with what they have done? 

 

Synopsis 

Three men meet on a night train on the border of Finland and Sweden. All three are concealing something, and a sudden confrontation amongst them leads to disastrous consequences, with two of them being forced to make a joint decision.

 

Synopsis 

In an overnight train to Oulu in Finland, three men meet by chance: The refugee Dominick and the martial arts trainer Jere, as well as Aleksi, who has absconded from a psychiatric unit. A confrontation develops out of a misunderstanding, an accident occurs – and in the end Aleksi is dead. Jere und Dominick get rid of the body and vow to remain silent about it forever. But that's not all that easy: As fate would have it, the two of them meet up again – when they encounter the ex-girlfriend of the dead man, of all people, who now has to take care of her young daughter alone. 

 

Will Dominick and Jere manage to continue pursuing their dreams in life, despite their horrific secret? A gripping thriller about the fatefulness of human encounters, one that reveals a multi-layered, fascinating picture of life in today's Finland using razor-sharp images.
