Women dressed in Afghan burkhas wander through the four seasons of the Finnish national landscape. The images move slowly, respecting the nature and its cycle. The women in burkhas communicate, as a humankind, with the big nature. These faceless women, who nonetheless have a strong presence, blend into the national landscape but also act as an unfamiliar, distancing element. On the surface the film deals with what is considered traditionally Finnish and with multicultural Finland.
