Raili Rantanen enters the laundry room of the building she lives in, carrying an overflowing laundry basked. It’s laundry day, which for her doubles as a weekly moment of comfort and personal psychotherapy. It is also Jukka’s laundry day, and he unintentionally messes up Raili’s laundry routine. During the pre-wash the two get acquainted. During the whites, Raili and Jukka exchange experiences from the battlefield of love. Raili talks about her previous relationship which ended with her husband walking out on her, while Jukka about his love for men. Before the spin program has ended, Raili and Jukka have found each other. (Tinfo/Sunklo)
