Set in the 1920s and centered on a few people in the process of radical change, this dramatic tour through the demimonde of prostitutes and addicts starts with Hart (Pekka Valkeejarvi in Helsinki. The young man drops out of studies in a divinity school to throw away time in a low-life cabaret. He ends up falling in love with Caritas (Stina Ekblad) who does not reciprocate his ardor because she is in love with a hard-edged poet. The poet, Hart, and Caritas take off for Paris and some carousing -- a situation that leads nowhere if not to change.
