UNNECESSARY PEOPLE

The Finnish man strikes back. A tragicomedy about unemployment.

What happens to the dignity of an unemployed man?
Can a woman be the head of a family?
Can you only fall in love once?
Can Prince Charming be a married man in his forties?

Four ordinary people are looking for answers. Their lives are being impacted by the global financial crisis in the all too familiar way. This comic drama about the honour and dignity of the common man unfolds in a small suburban apartment, in the supermarket and other plain and ordinary places. But love is possible despite all this pointlessness and nonsense.
