- Feeling ashamed about his failure and worried about his wife´s mental health, Juha decides to keep the fact that he got fired a secret. He spends his days on a remote service station thinking about a way out and the growing web of lies that he is slowly weaving.
Soon the desperate Juha finds himself, completely naked, brushing the hair of a woman he has never met before. He also finds himself earning in two hours what he used two earn in two days at his old job. With the help of his friend Olli, Juha, the father of three small children, begins to sell his body in earnest.
Juha´s shame and lies grow, but the money helps him cope with the downside of his new profession. And as long as wife Katja doesn’t touch her antidepressants, everything is fine.
