Based on a novel by the late Finnish writer Timo Mukka, this simple story focuses on what happens when Milka (Irma Huntus), a girl barely out of childhood, gets pregnant by Ojanen (Matti Turunen) a rustic fieldhand. Her own mother had been hoping to marry Ojanen, and her daughter's pregnancy turns their lives around. Set in the Lapp country of northern Finland, the scenery is breathtaking, made even more so by the isolation of the region. A sense of natural solitude is underscored by a slow-moving dialogue interspersed with long silences, and the connection between nature and the dialogue is underscored as the young Milka recites poetry while out in the countryside. The fate of Milka and her mother, however, is connected to the decision that Ojanen makes at the end.

In every society, there are taboo themes that everyone knows, but they are not happy about talking to them or dealing with people. Here, in Central Europe, we often encounter, for example, the phenomenon of alcohol dependence in the family or in a work community, but as long as it is not very serious, we will not confront him or even face ourselves with this problem. Likewise, taboo counts as our own sexuality and sexual identity, the lust of our hidden desires, the fear of death or the mourning of our lives, the past decades of hidden concealed sins or, for example, the atypical family models. Spektrum's new, self-produced show spans these topics without Taboos
