Directed by: Marja Pyykkö

Country: Finland

Premiere: International Premiere

A comedy about a man who is left alone with a baby. “Goodbye sex, nights in a bar and journalistic gigs. Welcome puke towels, artificial mother’s milk and Teletubbies. But where in hell can a man from the Stone Age find the maternal genes?” The life of Antti Pasanen, a journalist, is in order. His wife is just about to give birth. Until, in front of the Maternity Hospital, everything changes. With a sniveling bundle in his arms, Antti sees the taillights of a taxi fading away, with his wife Pia in the backseat and their future as a core family in jeopardy. The life in terms of the baby – aka Paavo Pasanen – begins and little does Antti know what it demands from him…
