My sister Tiina is reading a letter that is written by our mother Leena. It's written in 2008, three years before she actually died.
Tiina is reading it in April 2012 in our childhood home, one month after our mother died.
It's Tiina's birthday and while she's reading I'm eating her birthday cake.
We were in the house for a period of just one week to sort out what things we wanted to keep from our life there. We filmed a lot what happened. I made a surprise cake this day for my sister but when she came into the room she was crying and she sat down and read this letter.
We also found a lot of my mother's writings. And a notebook with just the word "Härdsmälta!" ("Core meltdown") written big on the cover. One day we will make a book. And a film.
