When twentysomething Petri gets dumped by his girlfriend, he tries to get over it by pushing his credit card limit. He buys stuff – lots of stuff. But it doesn´t make him happy. Petri is in the middle of an existential crisis when he decides to start an experiment on himself: He puts all his belongings in a storage container. For one year, Petri allows himself to retrieve only one item per day and he is not allowed to buy anything new. New life begins naked next to a radiator. MY STUFF was the audience darling at DocPoint Helsinki with extra screenings and sold out cinemas. If you like Finnish humour – you will love this fi lm! We smiled over this Facebook-post that was done after its premiere in Helsinki: „If somebody asks me after 50 years how was life back then, I tell them to watch the My Stuff-movie.“
