This film is set in a post apocalyptic world and imparts so much without resorting to exposition.  We open with a lone man (Kolelas) dragging his possessions through a barren landscape.  He comes across a solitary and desperate woman (Amanda Fernando Stevens), heading north.  There is a terrific interplay between the two actors with looks and body language revealing more about them to us than the couple of lines they exchange.  Director of Photography, Joni Juutilainen, really captures the washed out chalk hills beautifully and contrasts them sublimely with the blue skies full of white and grey clouds.  After an unbelievably tense wide shot, the film cuts to black and the credits roll; I was annoyed, not because it was a bad film, but because I was ready to sit and watch another 90mins set in the world that Kolelas creates.
