Finnish men in saunas bare themselves, both body and soul and speak straight from the heart about love, death, birth and friendship...about life itself. In the warmth of the sauna they cleanse themselves both physically and mentally in an exceptionally intimate and poetic film with a few extremely creative sauna construction concepts thrown in.
