Who can love

Pikku Iso?

Puppet short from 2018

Near a hill, by a lake, in the woods there is a place in which you are not likely to see another face.

Because since they closed down
the mine one day
not a single person wanted to stay.

Only one lonely creature,
Pikku Iso, remainedas a guardian of land, to the site he was chained.

In the tiny village of Isopikkujärvi (pop. 1) lives a lonely Maahianen (a guardian of land in the Torne valley folklore) named Pikku Iso.

Pikku spends his days plying old videogames and sometimes he dreams of somone to share his lonely life with.

One night, he signs up for an online dating site. He is barely done with his profgile when he gets the first match.

Soon Pikku is on his way to his first date in the neighbouring municipality. Will Pikku find love?
