Four men have gathered for a long-awaited sauna evening.
Summer cottage, couple of beers, and old friends. They do not stay in touch as much as they would like, but the sauna evening is a tradition from the days of old. Back then, they shared dreams and desires, but the years have taken their toll.
Sitting in the steaming sauna, all of them are pondering: What can I tell the others? What will they think of me? And in the end, will they be there for me?
The Naked Truth (FI), by Arttu Hanska and Joonas Katko, is a feel-good scenario is about the difficulty of talking and opening up. In Finnish culture, sauna is something that removes social boundaries. It?s a place where everybody is equal. Rank, wealth, and seniority carry no weight there. Everybody is naked, both physically and mentally. You are not in a hurry. And in this place alone you can cast away the stoic shell that the society expects of Finnish men.
Player type: You enjoy internal dialogue and weighting every word. You like to take things slow and to give space for silence. You enjoy an understated slowly building feel-good atmosphere.
