Finland, Netherlands, Denmark, Germany, 2022

Premiere 7.10.

Pepe is a lumberjack, who believes in a better tomorrow even though he lacks a reason to do so. The well-meaning man loses his wife, his house and his best friend all in a short span of time, but reacts to the tragic events in a calmly optimistic manner. Pepe's story is rife with humor that's dry as dust, absurd twists and mystical sights in the small northern town.

Metsurin Tarina won the Gan Foundation distribution award during the Cannes festival's La Semaine de la Critique.
