The Arrow Stoat (2014)
The Arrow Stoat (Nuolikärppä) is a fairytale that has something to offer for adults and children alike. Our main character is the Arrow Stoat, the hero of Swampland, who is given a task by the king; to find a groom for the princess. A colourful group of enthusiastic suiters arrive at the proposal ceremony, among them Prince Corrugated Iron and Filthy McNasty along with his simpleton servant.
Who will succeed in pleasing the princess's myopic eye? Who has wit enough to uncover Filthy McNasty's evil schemes? This comical story doesn't settle for recycling traditional princess fairytales. Instead, the destiny of the kingdom is resolved with the help of the motley group of characters in their own special way.
