Pekka Malmikunnas is a bankrupt, penniless, middle-aged man, who has convinced his family that he is still the CEO of a large IT company. Maintaining this facade in order to save face has become something of a full-time job for him. When Pekka’s parents suddenly decide that the estranged family should reunite, his carefully crafted hoax is in danger of being revealed.
