Taina (50) is preparing a perfect weekend with the family, since her son Eetu (20) is visiting with his girlfriend Noora (20). Nothing goes as planned. The more Taina tries to entertain everyone, the less comfortable they feel. Eetu is irritated since his mother doesn’t seem to listen. Noora doesn’t like Taina’s hints about grandchildren. Her husband Tero is mostly grunting. The youngsters leave earlier than expected, and Tero escapes to his man cave. Taina takes out her disappointment to a department store’s client service. She hurries to take back some of the groceries, when a surprising question in the department store’s hall stops her.
