A Syrian refugee seeks asylum in Finland. A traveling Finnish salesman leaves his wife and opens arestaurant. The two storylines overlap in this wry comedy, as these individuals try to find glimpses of hope and their own ways in the outskirts of the welfare system. Toivon tuolla puolen offers an artistic and humoristic take on the European refugee situation. Director Aki Kaurismäki won the award for Best Director at the Berlin International Film Festival in 2017 with this movie. In Finnish, Arabic, and English with English subtitles.

Tony is a mid-level manager living the comfortable life of those who “made it” in the newly capitalist society. He starts to question the value of morality, and in a series of surrealist events, descends into a midlife crisis riddled by horrific, albeit hilarious visions. Surrounded by a daily existence defined by the depravity and desolation of a moral and ethical void, Tony’s quest for a clearer conscience appears doomed. The film calls into consideration whether goodness and capitalism can co-exist.
