Plot synopsis
"Set in our times «Juhannus» is a story of a young Finnish girl Laura who, against the will of her parents, moves to St. Petersburg in search of her own place in the sun and in hope to find bright and unusual life differing from her quiet and serene existence in her native Helsinki. Having met her real love in Russia and coming through many trials together with her beloved Petersburgian Ivan, Laura will not only learn to see herself in a new light but also change much in the life of their parents – both Finnish and Russian."
