Iris (Kati Outinen) has a soul-deadening job as a quality-control worker watching boxes of matches go by on an assembly line all day. At night, she eats silently with her dour mother (Elina Salo) and stepfather (Esko Nikkari). One weekend, wearing her new red dress at a local dance, she ends up going home with Aarne (Vesa Vierikko), whom she mistakenly believes is her new boyfriend. When she discovers that she’s pregnant, years of pent-up rage explode in a shocking outburst. (Letterboxd)

- ‘The After Hours’ is a program that runs on weeknights, mainly focusing on 20th-century gems. The goal is to encourage Jakartans to tweak their work-gossip-complain-work lifestyle to something more substantial to dig (well..once in a while). The films are mostly 100 mins or less but with no subsequent official discussion. We guarantee you’d have a good course of topic to talk about with colleagues the next day. If not, then we fail.
- Notes for attendees: The After Hours has 'first come first serve policy'. So if you are on the waiting list you can still watch the movie as long as you come early/on time to attend the screening. Also, after 08.15 pm we won't accept anymore guest because we do not want our attendees who come on time to be disturbed while watching the movie.
