Pekka (Martti Suosalo) arrives back to his home village of Jerusalem to celebrate the last wedding of the village. His own marriage seems to have reached a dead end. The people of the village gather to prepare for the event, and the bitter spectrum of all human life, with its joys and sorrows, is condensed into one summer's day. Written and directed by Markku Pölönen, based on Heikki Turunen's book, as a swan song for a lifestyle that ended with the emigration of the 1970s.
