Pekko ja poika

1994 | 82 min | S | -

Middle-aged man Pekko’s ten-year-old stepbrother appears at Tyräaho with a social worker armed with custody papers. This marks the beginning of a fast-paced escape journey for Pekko and the stepbrother. It takes them to Helsinki to the beautiful Pipsa, who soon realizes she’s thoroughly entangled in the duo’s escapades. The village policeman pursuing the runaways also finds himself caught up in quite a whirlwind in the capital. Meanwhile, Pekko manages to stir up the art world of high society, and the press gloriously dubs the fugitives as Finland’s Bonnie and Clyde! Pekko’s journey is full of speed, and nothing seems impossible.
