The Longest Day

Watch trailer

Midsummer in Sweden; somewhere above the Arctic Circle. Many curious stories unfold in a small Finnish-speaking village, while the sun never sets.

Midsummer in Sweden; somewhere above the Arctic Circle. The people of a small Finnish-speaking community bravely soldier on with their pursuits under the merciless never-setting sun.

Some children are playing in the forest and make a strange discovery. A horrible accident takes place. A truck driver has a long way ahead of him in order to reach the place, while trying to get in touch with his family. A family of tourists from India has come to see the midnight sun. We also get to know three elderly men who spend the whole day on a bench in the park. Among other stories. It sure is hard to keep on feeling bad on the brightest day of the year.
