«Tänään (Today)»

»Tänään« consists of three short polemical episodes. The subject matter in the episodes is the relationship between father and daughter. In a summer night grandfather dies in an accident. The event is viewed through three different characters... The objective has been to... explore the possibilities of technical means in expressing subject matter, and nevertheless to maintain the relevancy of the work to larger audiences.
