This bleak melodrama chronicles the life of a masochistic drudge, her obnoxious and abusive second husband, and the effect this unfortunate union is having on Mika (Ilkka Koivula), her bright, previously optimistic son, who is driven to extreme lengths to cope with the ever-deteriorating situation he sees at home. His uncle has hired a man to kill his mother's new husband, and the killer tries to blackmail Mika, who has other ideas about the situation, all of which lead to a messy, violent conclusion. Curiously, the real-life story this Finnish movie is based on had a <I>much</I> happier ending.
