A magical comeback story about Leo Andelin, who in 1963 developed the most famous food of Finland – Lapin Kulta beer. A boy from a working class family in remote Tornio, Leo grew up to become the humble gentleman of beer, who passionately nurtured his “northern beer flower”. Leo’s life’s work was destroyed in 2010 when the time-honored Tornio brewery was shut down by the global beer giant Heineken. Local returnee Kaj Kostiander flies to the rescue of the old beer Jedi and passes on his wisdom to the younger man. Together they launch a record-breaking crowdfunding campaign and hunt for the original beer yeast. Like a real-life fairy tale, a golden reward awaits Leo and Kaj at the end. (P)
