Finland is a country with few people inhabiting quite a large area of forests and lakes, so everyone is used to having a lot of space around them. Being different is not easy; it is not acceptable to stand out. Finnish men do not sweet-talk, or say much at all for that matter. At least this is the stereotype. Is the younger generation any different? One hundred young men sit in the sauna squeezed in next to each other, forming a surface of bare skin. The camera is rolling. The viewer will see the individual as the men start reacting to the heat and leave one by one.
