Based on the story "Dear Mister Moon" by Aino Pervik

Feature film | Family Duration 92:09

When two stepsisters - 13-year-old blonde Sigrid and 7-year-old dark-complexioned Saara - meet each other for the first time, it will turn out that their grandmother has been taken to a retirement home. The girls make up their minds to steal grandma from the home and hide her in an attic-room where they could be all together. Everything goes unexpectedly well until drunkards, hoodlums and blackmailers interfere and the girls have to know exactly what they are doing in order to escape the gang.
