Kääntöpaikka - Turnaround

”A 12-year-old girl goes on a car ride with a man she met online.”

Short Film / 9 min

Director: Aino Suni

Twelve-year-old girl Sini has an internet-crush, who proposes a date. She ducks out of her parents’ party to meet him at a turnaround. There a thirty-year-old man, Henri, is waiting. Sini lies about her age and for a brief moment Sini feels like she is living her dream: sitting next to Henri, driving through the neighbourhood. When Henri parks the car on a forest road, she realizes she is expected to redeem an unspoken promise.
