Naked Finnish men in sauna tell very personal, very touching and hard stories, speaking straight from the heart. These are stories about love, birth, pleasure, death, friendship; about life itself. In all its simplicity the camera records the raw and rare beauty of Finnish landscapes, saunas and men all over the country. The documentary reveals men’s naked souls in an exceptionally intimate and poetic way.
