This moving and sensitive biopic tells of Finnish visual artist Tove Jansson (Pöysti), author and illustrator of the beloved Moomin cartoon series and books. Director Bergroth explores Jansson’s early romantic relationships with men and women, the power her successful and overbearing artist father had on her psyche, and her eventual self-acceptance and success as an artist.
