Unknown Soldier is a magnificent war film in which we closely follow Infantry Regiment 8 during the "Continuation War" from 1941 - 1944. The soldiers come from all over Finland and have different backgrounds and motivations. Some are experienced soldiers while others are young teenage boys who have barely touched a weapon before.

The film is based on the best-selling book Unknown Soldier by Väinö Linnas and is considered one of Finland's national treasures. The film is Finland's most expensive film ever.
