Story of a teenage girl growing up slowly in the 19th century.
Milka is a teenage girl growing up in the Finnish countryside, probably somewhere in Lappland, probably in the 19th century. She lives with her mother and their handyman "Kristus Perkele", who is an ex-cossack and one hell of a worker. The story is dark and extremely slow-paced, and it involves a lot of nudity, praying and strange Lappish accent.
