Village People

The President is coming – People go nuts! “Berries grow faster, animals bow, the sick are healed, the poor get wealthy and women conceive. All dreams come true where Kekkonen treads.”

Urho Kaleva Kekkonen, the long-time president of the Republic of Finland, is scheduled to visit Alli’s Bar on his way to northern Finland. He is blindly worshiped and the nearer the visit draws, the more envy, competition and dirty tricks we see in a small town. No one is spared the brutality!

A drama movie, based on the short story “Alli’s Bar”, in the novel “Urho Kekkonen Straße”, by Pia Pesonen.

“I’m so dying in here. Where can I complain?”
