Synopsis
Three middle-aged men are confronted with their masculinity. Matti is a paranoid expectant father who is crippled by self-doubt. Erkki is an inveterate ladies' man who is battling an unnamed illness and is emotionally wounded by his estrangement from his son. Rauno is a tired, failed actor who has returned to Helsinki from Paris in an attempt to reunite with his own twenty-something son. It is Christmas Eve, a time typically reserved for family, and the trio's inability to connect with the people closest to them is top of mind. A chance meeting at a hospital brings the three friends together, and they head out in search of a place to drown their sorrows. They end up bullying a karaoke bar owner to stay open and the bar becomes the stage for their unexpected breakdowns, emotional revelations and possible redemption.
