Family man Juha (T. Korpela) loses his job. He is so worried about his depressive wife that he keeps it a secret while hatching out a plan. He becomes a callboy, and his first job is brushing a woman's hair, naked. He now makes more in two hours than he previously made in two days. Only his mate Olli (J. Volanen) knows his secret. A social commentary, almost British in its melancholic sense of humour.
