    “Never take the entire pair!” is the mantra of the Oddsockeaters, the creatures responsible for our socks just disappearing into thin air, leaving us with a pile of odd socks.

    Young Niko gains experience left and right but he doesn’t seem to know what to do with it. He wants to be alone, or at least to be silent, but people keep asking him things.

    Section: Horizons

    A forlorn Syrian refugee and a morose door-to-door shirt salesman form a rather odd couple, but their interaction sends a melancholy yet optimistic message about the strength of solidarity. And fans of the distinctive Finnish director won’t be disappointed: there’ll be plenty of laconic humor, subtly humorous gags, and his inimitable set design.
