2018 Oscar® Selection, Finland
Pitch-black humor meets Nordic noir and animal rights advocacy in what filmmaker Teemu Nikki (LOVEMILLA) has called "DIRTY HARRY with pets." Veijo Haukka (Matti Onnismaa) is a reclusive mechanic with a second job as a black-market pet euthanizer and a side project doling out vigilante justice to neglectful animal owners. When a local neo-Nazi gang member asks him to euthanize his dog and Veijo secretly adopts it instead, a spiral of vengeance unfolds.
