Einari’s childhood could have been like that of any other Finnish boy. His father, Veikko, was an ordinary guy with a job at the local tax office and his mother worked as a radio journalist. Everything changed when Einari was 12 years old. His father experienced enlightenment and announced that he was a messenger between Earth and Outer Space. Henceforth, he could see extraterrestrial beings, contact the afterlife and display supernatural healing abilities. Einari became his father's apprentice and the entire universe seemed open to them. After all, in a past life they had been brothers in Sirius. Now, 25 years later, Einari confronts his father with his doubts. What really happened back then?
