Little Wing tells the story of Varpu (Linnea Skog), a 12-year-old girl who is growing rapidly into adulthood, and her mother Siru (Paula Vesala) who does not want to grow up. Varpu lives with his mother and has never met his father. One night he has enough of his horse-mates and his mother, so he decides to steal a car and drive north in search of his father, whose name he knows. But his father is not exactly what he expects. Meeting him will trigger something in Varpu and Siru’s life, bringing them to reflect on their role in each other’s life, and in the world.
