Veikko is an old racist who has ended up living in a suburban apartment block filled with a very colorful selection of refugees and immigrants. Kamal is a 16-year-old boy who’s fed up with his life in Finland and dreams of moving to Nairobi to live with his father. The only problem is that he doesn’t have a job or the money to buy the flight ticket. Veikko is ill, and he wants to go to his summer cottage to die. As his last deed, wanting to teach Kamal a lesson, Veikko hires Kamal to help him to get to his cottage, and there are a few surprise turns along the way.
