One day in Finland an actress rushed into rehearsals upset, breathless and very late. As is customary, she gave her excuse. During the night, a burglar had broken into her elderly friend’s apartment, rousing the old lady from her sleep. Instead of calling the police, her friend became infuriated. She forced the young burglar to sit down, share a cup of coffee and to explain to her why he was wasting his life. Olga is the story of an extraordinary relationship between a spirited, lonely old woman and a recalcitrant young dosser.
