The North Star

The North Star

The Finnish industrial town of Vuolijoki is headed for a crisis: the local factory of the European train car manufacturing company Talgo is in danger of clo-sure, due to diminishing demand and high overhead. A large commission from the (still state-owned) Finnish railway could be the lifesaver, so despite all EU directives, criteria for tenders, and international competition, a city council delegation sets out to lobby for their business location and place of living – with a substantial portion of stoicism and sauna towels as gifts.
