TFF: 10-year-old Inari is preparing for the traditional May Day celebrations with her enthusiastic mother and reluctant father. In order to ensure an enjoyable evening for everyone Inari decides to make a deal with God.

Kymmenvuotias Inari valmistautuu perinteiseen vapunpäivän juhlintaan innostuneen äitinsä ja vastahakoisen isänsä kanssa. Taatakseen kaikille mukavan illan Inari päättää tehdä sopimuksen Jumalan kanssa

AA: A tragicomical May Day party at a home with artistic friends. The dysfunctional father (Janne Reinikainen) is suffering from writer's block and to his horror learns that the subject of his great project, The Wandering Jew, is being adopted by others for an imminent production at the National Theatre. All this is seen from the viewpoint of the teenage daughter Inari who has made a pact with God, but her disappointment in the result is infinite. Music is important in this performance-driven film by a strong cast, especially "The Poem of the End" by Marina Tsvetayeva sung by Ona Kamu.

The title of the film refers to the way of both father and daughter.
