In a small town outside Oaxaca a group of muxes – the indigenous Zapotec "third gender" – band together to survive and thrive in rural Mexico.
 
Together they create beautiful traditional dresses, drawing the eye of a Spanish fashion house seeking native textiles they can appropriate. Faced with their own individual battles with grief, trauma and ignorance, an impending tragedy will send shockwaves through their tight-knit community and beyond. 
 
Exploring fashion's dual role as a means of exploring and embracing one's identity, and exploiting and commodifying people's labour and culture, Finlandia is a poignant and vibrant magical realist drama about found family, spirituality and, ultimately, hope.
