Northern Mishaps is a comedy-drama about two front-row actors and best friends trying to cope with approaching middle age, their curious obsessions and even hysterical fear of death.

Their situation calls for epic deeds, and they end up planning the biggest adventure of their lives – to reach the North Pole by running. They will be the first Finnish actors ever to do it, and proud of it. But before they face the Arctic, they need to train hard, gather a few hundred thousand euros, and sort out their complicated private lives.

During the long run, the guys will face moments of joy, desperation, sexual frustration and total exhaustion – and how will the men feel when they have finally accomplished their run?
