Friday Child

Running time: 16’51’’

Production: FI 2014

“Viikonloppulapsi” is about a mother and her daughter, who only see each other on weekends. During the week Tinja lives with her father, dreams about cows and misses her mother, who is struggling with alcoholism but loves her daughter and wishes to one day be able to live a normal life with her. When Tinja visits mom, life is an adventure; dressing up as ghosts, dancing and singing quirky songs. It's a melancholic, yet hilarious story that allows the viewer to realize things are not always black and white.
