The Activists has three intertwining stories about the assassination of Bobrikov the Russian Governor General of Finland in the beginning of the 20th century. Finland dreams about independence from the Russian regime. It’s a time of violence, sexual tensions and belief in the future. The Activists is a political thriller, a radical portrayal of historical events. The style is modern, fast and humane.
