Mad from the Sun

Miina, a middle-aged woman, wakes up early on a Saturday morning. She could continue sleeping, but something is keeping her awake. The rest of her family is still asleep, the house remains quiet.

Miina gets up to make coffee. Her morning routine is interrupted as she finds a small plastic bag taped to the window. Inside, she finds a bloody human ear.

The ear sends Miina back in time to relive her first teenage love affair with Lukas. The couple loves to play a game where they challenge each other to prove their love: “If you love me, you’ll eat that chunk of butter.” Miina gets hooked on Lukas and the game.
