Biopic of Tove Jansson, the renowned Finnish artist, author and creator of the Moomins.

Born in the 1910s to an artist family, young Tove is always creative, but from early on she has to contend with the shadow of her father, established Finnish sculptor Viktor Jansson.

The film charts Tove's formative years - her love affairs with philosopher Atos Wirtanen and theatre director Vivica Bandler, her early career as a painter, and how she came up with the Moomin characters that eventually made her famous.

In Finnish and Swedish with English subtitles.
