Prisoners of the Ground - A film in the shape of a Finnish Tango

Prisoners of the Ground

The lyrics of the Finnish Tango are the inspiration for this film about the desire to escape from daily reality. On a journey through Finland we are led out of a deep depression when light appears on the horizon – we are taken from a black winter towards the promise of a light-filled paradise. The individual fantasies, memories and philosophies of each character in the film help design a guide to surviving the dark.
