The Raspberry Boat Refugee is a comedy of a Swedish man trapped in the body of a Finn. Mikko Virtanen hates everything Finnish. Ever since childhood, he has wanted to trade the oppressive silence and the endless beatings, knife fights and flow of vodka for a Swedish life: public insurance, fridge-cold buttermilk and Abba. On a ship trip Mikko runs into Mikael, a Swedish psychologist who is thoroughly fed up with the Swedish culture of rational moderation. On the deck, the two men come up with a solution that will change their entire lives. Mikko will assume Mikael's identity and finally become a born and bred Swede. Now Mikko only needs to get to know his new Swedish family.
