An actress named Leila leaves the city with her two sons in order to avoid the tabloids. While the younger son, the reclusive Unto, wanders the neighbourhood with his camera, the older Ilmari is annoyed by any “intruder“ who would threaten the relationship with his beloved mother. When mother's new lover begins to stay with the family, Ilmari's “protective tendencies“ become increasingly more dangerous. Director Zaida Beregroth focuses on a psychologic portrait of the unhealthy relationship of a son to his mother. The picture was awarded the Gold Hugo at last year's IFF in Chicago (New Directors Competition).
