Synopsis

Cana, a Syrian woman, wants to buy a fridge in Helsinki as a part of her settling-down process. To deliver the fridge home, she rides in a van with Ville and Rony where the three worlds intersect on themes of coldness, home and exile. When they arrive with the fridge, they discover that Cana has three fridges at home already. She was stuck in the prison of nostalgia, reliving her father’s last vocal message when he was giving her advice on what to pay attention to when buying a fridge.
