Timo is an esteemed concert pianist whose personal life is on the rocks. One day he finds an older shabby-looking man at his door. The man, Leo, turns out to be his father who left the country when Timo was 3-and hasn't been in touch for 35 years. Leo, an eternal trickster with a positive outlook on life, had to leave his homeland thanks to a series of messy entanglements. Now he's come back to hand over a rather mysterious legacy to his son and answer questions regarding the past. To do this the two will have to embark on a trip together and hit the road north. What starts out as a comical and quirky clash of personalities ends up as an emotional revelation, as the two men inadvertently help each other to come to terms with their own failings.
