Teuvo Tulio’s oldest surviving film follows a spoilt and arrogant young man, the son of a landowner, playing fast and loose with the affections of a number of young women. In fact, he’s so busy seducing the women of the region that it’s a wonder any actual farming gets done at all. But eventually he finds himself forced to face up to his social and sexual responsibilities.
