September of 1944, just a few months before the end of WWII. Having fought on opposing sides, a Finnish sniper and a Russian officer find shelter in
no man’s land on a farm owned by a young Lapp widow. It is a poignant anti-war story. But there is also wonderful comedy in the Lapp woman’s
cheerful erotic enthusiasm, and in the struggles of the three people who speak different languages to overcome their language gaps.
