Helsinki, 1945. The end of the war brings a new sense of artistic and social freedom for
painter Tove Jansson. Tove’s desire for liberty is put to the test when she meets theatre
director Vivica Bandler. Her love for Vivica is electric and all-consuming, and as she
struggles with her personal life, her creative endeavors take her in an unexpected
direction. While focusing her artistic dreams on her painting, the work that started as a
side project, the melancholic, haunting tales she told scared children in bomb
shelters, rapidly takes on a life of its own. The exploits of the Moomins, infused with
inspiration from her own life, bring Tove international fame and financial freedom.
