Original title: Päin mäntyä
Class/genre: Young Adults
A genuine, touching portrait of young people whose development and emotions are at their most frenzied.
16-year-old Miro is starting his studies in a forestry school, even though he doesn’t think that he’ll ever become a professional forester. Behind this defiant decision is the desire to get away from an increasingly dangerous circle of friends and his father’s authority. Miro, the snowboarding enthusiast is more into hanging out at the Kalla ski center, where things take a different turn when he falls head-over-heels for Aava, the girl for whom environmentalism is a matter of the heart.
