Veijo Haukka, a mechanic in his 50s, is a bitter and lonely man. People visit him when their pets need to be euthanized, as he is willing to do the job cheaper than the local vet. Veijo is fonder of animals than people, and when the wannabe neo-nazi Petri wants him to kill a dog, Veijo refuses. Petri and his right-wing companions do not approve of this and soon trouble is brewing. But, as the self-proclaimed “Soldiers of Finland” soon will discover, killing pets is not so different from killing people.
EUTHANIZER is a dark comedy about morally flawed people in the Finnish countryside. Veijo Haukka seems to be a Finnish version of Travis Bickle, Robert De Niro’s famous character in TAXI DRIVER, searching for justice and vengeance with all the wrong means. EUTHANIZER contains scenes of graphic violence that some may find disturbing.
