Everybody needs love. Including Jaakko, who is tied to his wheelchair. Jaakko’s love is Sirpa. They have never met in real life, but on the phone, they meet every day. Sirpa gets terrible news about her health, and Jaakko decides to go to her immediately. It is not the easiest decision because Jaakko is blind and paralyzed to his chest.
