At the beginning of the video, references are made to the original SISU motor’s development history and use in power transmission for trailers, when timber transport required more tractive power to cope in difficult conditions. Behind this was engineer Ilmari Louhio’s steadfast development work, that began during the post-war rebuilding era of the 1950’s. The plot twists comemorate SISU motor’s production, which has since been moved to many areas in Finland.
The historical and geographical tour culminates in the film with a celebration of the homecoming theme. In a changing world, a new kind of grasp of work is required.
