Among others, they are waiting for the president
The whole village goes insane as the word of the President’s visit spreads out
SYLVI (Wilma Rosenqvist)
Life is a blast – but not if you’re 15 years old, you live far up north in Lapland, your mother is a loud-mouthed barkeeper, you have one week to learn how to play the Finlandia hymn on a violin and the President ruins your dawning romance.
ALLI (Merja Larivaara)
Alli laughs out loud and plays it rough – exactly like the barkeeper of the village needs to do.
MAIJA KELLINSALMI (Marjaana Maijala)
Maija is a woman who wants to lead a life that’s full of dangers and freedom – like an airline stewardess.
MARTTI KELLINSALMI (Konsta Mäkelä)
Damned is the day when the Assistant Engineer of the County invented the Santa Claus Village project.
LIISA (Miina Turunen)
Liisa is the village nurse. Everyone knows that. But very little else is known about this mystical character.
OLAVI AND ANNELI (Aake Kalliala and Jukka Puotila)
Anneli is a man of reason. Olavi is a talented sonnet artist. But the world might be too tough for them.
KAARIN-ANNE (Kristiina Elstelä)
Kaarin-Anne is the village idiot, always sitting close to the action, ready to quote one of her endless lists. No one ever bothers to listen to them, but they always have a sprinkle of truth in them.
FANNI (Marja Myllylä)
A prisoner of her own bed back home, Fanni knows the twists and turns of the world politics and the last rumors of the villagers.
JUSSI ALALUUSUA (Ilmari Järvenpää)
Jussi is often kissing and necking with Sylvi but he has a small problem; he’s told everyone that he is a well-equipped, unmarried child of Kekkonen.
SINIKKA (Iina Kuustonen)
Sinikka has fallen off the straight and narrow path – but now she is redeeming herself.
VALO & KAARINA
The pet reindeer of the village. But even that title is useless when the father of the country is visiting.
