Synopsis by Eleanor Mannikka
In this interesting but slow drama on personal relationships, an old curmudgeon recluse is influenced for the better by a young girl who by her very nature, sees him only as a kind man. The recluse, Jon (Peter Lindgren) went into seclusion after his wife and two children died in a train accident. Unknown to the villagers who dismiss him as befuddled or inebriated, the man is an accomplished artist. Once this news gets out to the media Jon is bombarded by the press and television cameras. He only allows little Maria into his home, and thanks to her vision she gives him just the right advice. Meanwhile, Maria has problems of her own.
