    Synopsis

    How to survive the dark Finnish winter? In Prisoners of the Ground Stella van Voorst van Beest takes us on a journey through Finland to the rhythm of the Finnish tango. In karaoke bars and dance halls we meet people from all walks of life and get to know their life stories full of nostalgia and melancholy. And while they find solace in the tango, the snow outside slowly starts to melt, but when the sun finally breaks through, will these prisoners of the ground be able to reach the happy place they dream about?
