TFF: "It is the summer of 1944 and Karelia is being evacuated. Right when they receive the order to leave, one of the cows begins to calve."

AA: Charcoal drawn animation. The handcrafted quality is intimate and evocative. The kantele music and the dirge singing are delicate. Story: during the worst catastrophe of the war a calf is born.
    A work of art.
