Miss Zahra

"To find love you sometimes need to do strange things."

A lonely forest machine driver Seppo receives an e-mail from a mysterious woman called Zahra, who asks for help with her money problems. Seppo’s best friend Jussi claims that the message is a hoax, a so called nigerian letter, but Seppo decides to trust his heart for once. Seppo answers to Zahra and soon finds himself head over heels in love - and in danger.
