Synopsis
Short synopsis

A young boy lives with his mother on a farm surrounded by deep forest in the remote wilds of the Finnish countryside. From time to time, the boy visits his father – a man of great violence – in prison. Locked in the stable is an unruly horse, the boy’s only other companion. Their simple life is disrupted when a stranger appears, with a note from the father and a bullet in his side. Reluctantly, mother and son offer the stranger refuge.

The first feature from Jukka-Pekka Valkeap¤¤, director of the award-winning Short The Fall, The Visitor is a powerful and transcendent story of mystery and betrayal, love and conflicting loyalties, a tragic myth unfolding against a landscape of stark natural beauty and brooding latent violence.
