Light Light Light

Valoa valoa valoa


In the spring of 1986, there is an explosion in Chernobyl and a girl called Mimi arrives in a small village in western Finland. She immediately fills 15-year-old Mariia’s life with radiating light. 20 years later Mariia returns home to take care of her sick mother, and memories of that meaningful summer start rising to the surface.
