  • Eero is a writer, whose career is in a downward spiral, and he is badly struggling to write his new novel. Pihla is an ambitious actress on the verge of an international breakthrough. Neither of them is willing to sacrifice their careers even though their relationship is doing worse than ever. Eero ends up resorting to unusual, desperate measures in order to get his career going again. The determined Pihla decides to juggle her career with her new role as a mother.
