BROTHERS

by Esa Illi

synopsis

Joni and Sami are two brothers, whose lives have taken separate path. The younger one, Joni, is terminally ill, but has found love and is happily settled down in a small town in Estonia. Sami, instead, is a successful photographer, whose will to love has diminished and led him to dead end. When they meet, Sami wants to take Joni back to finland for medical treatment. But the paradise-like life of Joni and Rimma makes him to consider his own life from different perspective.
