Kertu is kept at close reign living at home with her parents. In the village, where she silently delivers the mail, word is out that she is a simpleton. Villu, the local handyman, wins Kertu’s heart, even though everyone knows him to be a shameless womanizer and hopeless drunk. She had never expressed feelings for anyone until the day she sent him a postcard with a poem she had copied. He was touched. One night, they break away from a village celebration for the long walk home. Villu, who had just suffered the first glimpse of his own mortality, is sweet and tender with Kertu. The police search in vain for the couple; but it is only in the morning that Kertu is discovered at the home Villu shares with his mother, Malle. Kertu’s father flies into a rage when she refuses to press charges against the man now known as her abuser. The young couple is soon challenged to take a stand on the dream they share of freedom and happiness together.

Kertu est une jeune femme douce et fragile qui habite avec ses parents, sous la surveillance de son père violent. À 30 ans, Kertu décide de changer sa vie et elle envoie une carte à Villu, un marginal aimant l'alcool et les femmes. Ils tombent amoureux et se retrouvent dans le labyrinthe des relations compliquées et de la tyrannie. Son père, autoritaire et protecteur, fait tout pour l'écarter de Villu, qui se trouve dès lors rejeté par tous les habitants du village. Une histoire d'amour hors du commun au sein d'une petite communauté qui cultive les secrets et les préjugés.
