Cannes Grand Prix winner Compartment No. 6 follows young Finnish archaeology student Laura, who is convinced by her lecturer and lover to take a trip to an ancient site of petroglyphs near the Arctic Circle.

However, when she boards the long-distance train to take her there, she finds that she has to share her carriage with Ljoha, a foul-mouthed, misogynistic drunk travelling to his new job as a miner. Initially, they seem to have nothing in common, but the more time Laura spends with Ljoha the more he thaws, revealing an unforeseen kindness beneath the macho façade.

This chance meeting between the two occupants of compartment no. 6 brings about an awakening within them, forming a bond they will never forget.

A warming and unexpected tale of adventure, self-discovery and human connection.
