“The strongest message of FAR FAR LOVE is the dialogue between the generations.” – Anun ihmeelliset matkat blog

Summary

Kauko Koskinen is a man of order: receipts are organized, 60 years of calendars are safely stored, and every day has certain rhythms and routines. But when he gets banned from the dementia care home where his wife resides, his life turns upside down. Memories of his youth bring a person from the past back to his mind: where is his first love now? Kauko starts to track down a woman he knew sixty years ago, but is he chasing only a memory or a dream?
