The year is 1978. Aaro Lamminparras is a down-on-his-luck businessman. He is always patriotic and full of good intentions but is often cheated by his partners. One drunken evening in Oulu he ends up spending a night with his friend, sergeant Lönnroth, an avid hunter and gun collector. In the morning Lamminparras decides to fl y to Helsinki after arguing with his wife on telephone. Onboard he is surprised to find a handgun in his briefcase and, on a whim, he hijacks the plane. This starts a hilarious chain of events – both inside the plane and outside. With the country shut down for the Easter holiday, politicians are partying, the media is shocked, the police caught off-guard, the rumors are outrageous…
