Sinopsis: "Is a schoolboy still allowed to sit on your lap?" the boy asks when the last day of summer turns to night. This 7-year-old feels tiny and very big at the same time. He becomes a big brother and learns to read and lie. His heart beats for a girl for the first time, and he promises to swear less if his friends promise it too. How great it is to survive on your own! But how does it feel when you don't know whether you are big or small?

Mia Halme's previous films include Erotic Vivica (1999), Yhden hengen perhe (2005) and Halki kaupungin (2001).
