Veeti and the Beanstalk - Veeti ja pavunvarsi (FIN)

Veeti and the Beanstalk is a story about a boy (Joona Jormanainen) who is cast in the middle of grown-ups' grief.
After his father's (Jaakko Tohkanen) death, Veeti's mother (Ulla Lehmusoksa) cries so much that their house becomes flooded. Soon the flood of her tears threatens to drown the whole house. To escape from the flood, Veeti decides to grow a magical tree that will reach all the way to heaven. What will happen when, against Veeti's hopes, the tree doesn't grow and the water keeps rising higher day after day?
