25-year-old Iiris and Karoliina have been best friends since childhood. Karoliina has been travelling and living abroad for some years now, but is coming back home for the summer as Karoliina has gotten them a job as waitresses in Hanko, the best summer city in Finland! Th girls leave Helsinki behind and head to conquer Hanko - it is going to be the best summer ever! The dream starts to fall apart as soon as they arrive when the girls find themselves in a sad old apartment building from the 70’s, instead of the beautiful villa they had imagined, and their co-worked Eeva at the coffee house seems a little slow. Iiris, who is used to come and go as she pleases and has a serious fear of commitment, meets Jussi, a 25-year-old tennis teacher who is also spending his summer in Hanko. Despite of resisting it, Iiris suddenly finds her self falling for him. Karoliina, confident theology student, with a solution to every problem, is not ready to give up on their dreams just yet. When she hears that Eeva is house sitting her aunts’ villa for the summer, she convinces Eeva to let Iiris and herself move in. The set up for the perfect summer is starting to line up.
