Description:

Dreams on a collision course, a family in a community, voluntary work to help others and growth on an emotional level are some of the themes of this film.

Living in an eco-community in Keuruu in central Finland, the Tuohiniitty family strives to live ecologically and to be as self-sufficient as possible in food and energy. Hannes Tuohiniitty, a passionate idealist and father, grows organic food in his fields, renovates his home and runs for Parliament as a representative of the Green Party.

The views and needs of the community and the family, however, do not meet and coordinating all the work that needs to be done becomes an impossible task. Life puts the family at a difficult crossroads.

What will happen to their dream when reality shows you its ugliest face?
