During a military reserve training exercise, Jussi Vares (Juha Veijonen) is taken 'prisoner' by beautiful female sergeant, Eeva Sunila (Laura Malmivaara). At the party held to mark the end of the exercise Vares finds himself strongly attracted by his 'captor', but what seems to be promising situation proves a let down: Eeva, who is a teacher in civilian life, tells him that she is about to get married. And Vares is not permitted to pat her down...
After a fast-paced series of incidents, Eeva makes headlines all over the country while the chase takes Vares across southern Finland, and through endless drenching rain.
The millions, skimmed from Russian Mafia operations, have a lot of takers. And human life is not worth much in comparison.
Eeva Sunila discovers that she's the fall guy in a game whose main players include her new husband Antero Kraft (Jorma Tommila), traitorous man-eater Ifigenia Multanen (Minna Turunen), ruthless business-shark Karl E. Miesmann (Jari Halonen), crooked cop Mikko Koitere (Samuli Edelmann) and professional hitmen Jari "Red-Eye" Munck (Pekka Valkeejärvi) and Tetsuo Sinkkonen (Kari Hietalahti).
Betrayal, lust and cruelty spiral into an inevitably violent conclusion as the game plays itself out in the relentless rain.
When his back is against the wall, Vares is a man of action, driven by a strange sense of chivalry. This weighs more in the scales than his own life.
