When time runs out
Hirvonen, Elina, 1975-2017
Articles
A young man is shooting people from a rooftop in downtown Helsinki. An unsuspecting mother is confronted with a horrifying scenario she's powerless to stop. A sister can only watch events unfold from afar. Over the course of a day, one family fractures and with lives at stake each member is forced to examine everything that brought them to this moment. But this crisis goes beyond their small lives; Aslak is not the only boy on a rooftop with a gun today. He is part of an international group set on stopping environmental disaster by killing as many of those they deem responsible - first-world citizens - as possible. Can a desperate mother reconcile her complicated feelings towards her profoundly disillusioned son and reach him in time to avert a catastrophe?
