TFF: Selfish Ulf, 71, is shocked when his only friend, Mauri, informs on his deathbed that Ulf is a Prick. In order to inherit Mauri’s estate, Ulf must organise a party that will have at least one guest. Can Ulf find a guest for his party?

Itsekeskeinen Ulf, 71, järkyttyy, kun hänen ainoa ystävänsä, Mauri, ilmoittaa kuolinvuoteellaan Ulfin olevan mulkku. Saadakseen Maurin omaisuuden perinnöksi Ulfin on järjestettävä juhlat, johon tulee edes yksi juhlavieras. Löytääkö Ulf juhliinsa vieraan?

AA: A character-driven comedy based on the performance of Vesa Vierikko with a top cast.

Despicable Ulf has no redeeming features.

The dying Mauri's last word to his only friend Ulf: "dick".

A well made stylized comedy about a hateful man. Even Aku his pet snail escapes from a little greenhouse. While struggling to invite people to his party Ulf succeeds in making even worse enemies of them. He finally arranges the party required anyway. At first only his physiotherapist and the ghost of Mauri are in attendance. When Tauno comes he only survives for 45 seconds.

But the pet snail Aku returns... only to be eaten by Ulf. No ray of hope in this black comedy.
