August Fools


August Fools is a romantic comedy set against the political backdrop of the Cold War. It is the story of Elsa, a middle-aged milliner and part-time clairvoyant in total control of her life-until the man she once loved and lost walks in through the door of her little hat shop, in Helsinki, in 1962. Jan, a Czechoslovakian jazz musician, is in town to perform at the "International Festival of Peace and Friendship of the Youth of the World." … As Elsa eventually overcomes her fear of love and commitment, she realises there is only one solution if the two of them want to be together...
