Somewhat enigmatic and understated, this quiet film is about Joel Strom (the real-life artist Niilo Hyttinen) a deaf-mute painter who lives in the northern Lapland country of Finland and practices his art. His "Mammy" is mother nature herself, perhaps closer to him than anyone else. Stubborn (sometimes recognized as a Finnish trait) about sticking with his love of painting, Joel's perseverance is so total that it just might pay off one day.
