The film tells the story of 13 year-old Emika and her cousin Antti, as they go on adventures around the fascinating, diverse Saimaa archipelago. Through a young girl’s eyes we get to know Saimaa’s nature during all four seasons.

This cheerful film for the whole family paints a magical picture of Saimaa, where nature is alive and gives shelter in all four seasons. In the coldest winter you can sleep in a tent on the ice on top of the lake you swam in during the summer. Inside the ice there's the nest of the ringed seal, and in Spring time Emika and Antti start looking for this rare and shy mascot of the area. Through the diversity of nature, the film also speaks out on the theme of difference and tolerance.
