The thrilling drama from the internationally awarded and acclaimed director Petri Kotwica.

When the truth finally dawns, will it be too late to forgive?

Kiia and Lauri are speeding down a dark country road, anxious to reach the hospital because Kiia has gone into premature labour. Their car hits something. Lauri goes to take a look, and tells his wife he saw nothing. They rush to the hospital, and Kiia gives birth to a healthy baby boy. While in the hospital, Kiia meets Hanna, a woman whose husband is in a coma, the victim of a hit-and-run driver. Kiia befriends Hanna and tries to help her desperately without revealing her role in the accident. When the truth finally dawns, will it be too late to forgive?
