After he finally manages to put him to sleep in the evening, his mother shows up after all: drunk and in the company of a stranger. - Akseli goes hunting with his father, a former alcoholic. They haven't spoken a word in years, and on the hide, too, it is better to remain silent. - And then there is Joni, 18: He supplements his pocket money by putting on a wolf costume to delight little children, and by undressing in the evening to delight housewives.
