Product Description

Timo, an esteemed concert pianist, gets the surprise of his life one day after arriving home after a performance only to find a homeless drunkard asleep outside his front door. The man, Leo (played by Finnish musician, actor and artist Vesa-Matti Loiri), makes the outrageous claim to be Timo's long-lost father who left the country when Timo was three and had not been in touch since. Leo, as mysterious and manipulative as he is slovenly, has returned to bestow his legacy upon his only son, and to re-unite him with his estranged family Timo's sister, ex-wife and daughter. Creating more questions than answers, Leo proves to be his son's alter-ego of sorts, eventually prying him from his comfort zone and forcing him to reluctantly reconcile with shadows of the past.

Timo is skeptical of his father from the very beginning and is never actually able to feel comfortable around him for very long, until he learns the truth of why Leo has come back to learn about the man his son has become. Full of surprises, Road North is a hearty father-son comedy and official TIFF 2012 Selection which endeavors to teach its viewers a simple but important lesson: sometimes you have to travel a long way to see what is right in front of you.
