Timo is an esteemed concert pianist whose personal life is on the rocks. One day he finds an older shabby-looking man at his door. The man, Leo, turns out to be his father who left the country when Timo was 3—and hasn't been in touch for 35 years. Leo, an eternal trickster with a positive outlook on life, had to leave his homeland thanks to a series of messy entanglements. Now he's come back to hand over a rather mysterious legacy to his son and answer questions regarding the past. To do this the two will have to embark on a trip together and hit the road north. What starts out as a comical and quirky clash of personalities ends up as an emotional revelation, as the two men inadvertently help each other to come to terms with their own failings.
