Iiris (Outinen) is an unremarkable young woman who works in a factory to support her uncaring mother and stepfather. After being jilted, she goes about getting a quiet but terrible revenge. Stunningly bleak drama with none of Kaurismaki's usual deadpan humour and quiet optimism, anchored in Outinen's grim, hollow-eyed performance.
