Crossing Tracks

Heikki is coaching his son Hannu to become a professional cross-country skier. Hannu has been skiing ever since he learned how to walk. The father’s wishes for his son’s future contradict with Hannu’s own interests and motivations. Hannu’s success at competitions is poor, and his mind is already on other things besides the ski tracks in Lapland. But what happens when the only thing the father and son have in common comes second?
