Plot

"Äideistä parhain" tells the story of a Finnish boy named Eero Lahti, played by Topi Marjaniemi, as a child and Esko Salminen as an adult. Due to Eero's father being killed in the Winter War, his mother (Marjaana Maijala) falls into a deep depression and decides to send Eero to Sweden as a refugee. Eero is placed with a family in Skåne. The story focuses on Eero's difficulties in adjusting to the language barrier, resentment from his new mother, Signe (Maria Lundqvist), who would have rather had a girl placed with them than a boy, Eero's longing to go back to his biological mother and his fears of abandonment.
