Laura (Sibel Kekilli) from Hamburg, Germany is married to a workaholic Finnish man named Arto (Teemu Palosaari) with whom she has a 10-month old baby. When Arto gets a good job offer, Laura agrees to move to Tampere, Finland with him but comes to doubt if it was a good idea after all. The cold, wintery city does not feel very welcoming, the people are sullen and withdrawn and Laura feels lonely during her days at home alone behind the language barrier. Eventually she ends up joining a single mothers' support group and makes some friends, but most importantly meets a handsome rock singer Tero (Mikko Leppilampi) who often comes to the group to play music for the kids. Suddenly Laura doesn't feel so lonely anymore, but things are not that simple for a married woman.
