Jaakko is blind and disabled; the brightest moments in his day are those on the phone with Sirpa, the woman he loves even though they’ve never met in person. When Sirpa gets difficult news, Jaakko decides he must go to her immediately, even if none of his usual caretakers can accompany him. After all, he only needs the help of five kind strangers in five specific places between home and her...what could go wrong? The Blind Man Who Did Not Want to See Titanic is an intense, atypical thriller filmed from the perspective of the blind protagonist, a man who’s willing to go through hell to reach his loved one.
