A man whose dreams were interrupted by war, a man who rose from poverty all the way to the top and became an artist that was dearly loved by the Finnish people. A man who performed both on stage and in films and who finally lost everything but his unique voice. It is a film about a man who loved beautiful women and who was loved by beautiful women. A man who enjoyed speed, American cars, applause, and alcohol
