Touko Laaksonen je odlikovani oficir koji se posle herojske i potresne odbrane domovine u Drugom svetskom ratu konačno vraća kući samo da bi otkrio kako ni život u miru nije nimalo manje uzbudljiv. Uočava kako u mirnodopskom Helsinkiju buja progon homoseksualaca, kao i pritisak na gej muškarce da se ožene i imaju decu. Touko pronalazi utočište u svojoj slobodnoj umetnosti usavršavajući se u homoerotskim ilustracijama nagih muškaraca nesputanih nagona. Njegov rad poznat po čuvenom potpisu „Tom of Finland“ postao je simbol jedne generacije homoseksualaca i podstakao plamen gej revolucije.

Dome Karukoski je rođen na Kipru. Majka mu je bila finska novinarka, a otac američki glumac i pesnik. Porodica se preselila u Finsku kada je Karukoskom bilo svega pet godina. Smatra se jednim od najuspešnijih filmskih režisera u Finskoj sa preko trideset festivalskih priznanja i šest igranih filmova koji su postali blokbasteri u domovini, dok su u inostranstvu su zadobili veliku pažnju filmske publike.

Touko Laaksonen, a decorated officer, returns home after a harrowing and heroic experience serving his country in World War II, but life in Finland during peacetime proves equally distressing. He finds peace-time Helsinki rampant with persecution of the homosexual men around him, even being pressured to marry women and have children. Touko finds refuge in his liberating art, specializing in homoerotic drawings of muscular men, free of inhibitions. His work – made famous by his signature ‘Tom of Finland’ – became the emblem of a generation of men and fanned the flames of a gay revolution.

One of Finland’s most highly acclaimed directors, Dome Karukoski has been named one of “Variety’s” top 10 Directors to Watch. His features include BEAUTY AND THE BASTARD, HOME OF THE DARK BUTTERFLIES, FORBIDDEN FRUIT, LAPLAND ODYSSEY, HEART OF A LION and THE GRUMP, the latter three of which had their premieres at Toronto IFF. His latest film Tom of Finland was selected as part of the 2017 edition of Tribeca FF and Helsinki IFF.
