At the centre of the Finnish ‘eurovisuell’-contribution stands young reporter Emma, who must interview the acclaimed conductor Joel Abrahamsson. Although the interview flops, Emma and Joel fall in love. Before she knows it, she is living in Joel’s picturesque country home, looking after his stubborn, spirited mother, who suffers from dementia. When an attractive violinist strikes Joel’s fancy, Emma decides to play a highly unusual ‘solo’. The box office hit of the last season.
