Dani, (31) and Henkka, (30) have known each other since they were teenagers. Henkka has suggested that they go on a weekend trip to an island in Helsinki Finland, where they often spent time when they were younger. Dani’s business recently went bankrupt and Henkka thought that on this trip Dani would get something else to think about, even for a moment. When the evening comes by the campfire, Dani gathers the courage to ask Henkka for a big loan, which Henkka does not have to give. Dani also reveals to Henkka that he has not told about his bankruptcy to his wife, who has also become unemployed. The next morning Dani goes for a little walk on the island. He notices a stained spot next to a tree. What is found from there, and the men’s choices from then on, will have consequences that will follow them for the rest of their lives.
