Where have all the workers gone? In Koijola, a small industrial town amidst the Finnish woods the workers of a saw mill mysteriously disappear. Detective Käki is sent from Helsinki to investigate the case. He hates the province and arrives with an uneasy gut feeling. In Koijola confusing chaos awaits him. What is the boss of the saw mill hiding? Is murderous feminism at work, here? What's Marx got to do with it? Thank God for Titty Bar! Here, the Detective can contemplate the case as he suddenly hits the missing link. While Käki is being dragged deeper and deeper into the woods his darkest foreshadows come to life.

In the eastern back corner of Finland masses of people are not to be seen and jobs are hard to find. Especially today, with more and more local industry giving in to global competition, leaving closed down places and empty cities behind. What's there left to do in a small Finnish town? Music!

Is this a music video? Is this a crime story? Is this anti-capitalist DADA? The Finish summers are cold and short but the sun never sets. A Film Noir out of raw daylight.
