Rauli "Badding" Somerjoki (Janne Reinikainen) was one of Finland's best-known rock singers during the 1970s, but with the dawn of the 1980s, he's developed a severe case of stage fright and an addiction to alcohol. Badding is talked into staging a major comeback show, but when faced with the prospect of facing a sold-out arena for the first time in years, Badding panics and wonders if he's up to playing the gig. Ossi (Peter Franzen), an old friend, offers to give Rauli a ride to the show and help him keep his courage up, but there's a catch -- these days, Ossi is working as a journalist, and he wants an exclusive interview with the elusive Badding about how he rose to stardom and then returned to obscurity. Land of Happines (1993) Nostalgic comedy set in the early 1960s, when the tango was all the rage. The "prodigal son" Tenho returns from his unlucky adventures in the city back to his parents' farm. Tenho becomes the laughing stock of local men until he scores the hottest girl in the village. A hot romance flares up between Tenho and the sensuous milkmaid Virva, accompanied by popular Finnish tango tunes.|
