When You Least Expect It

Play Video

There are two people who wake up in the same bed one morning, and neither of them has a clue who the other is. Viivi would like to run away and the man is sleeping like a log. Unlike Viivi and Andu themselves, the viewers know both very well. They know that Viivi has the worst day in her life and that Andu is a dweeb, but not completely hopeless; a rather good-hearted man.

They are both hopelessly lonely people hoping that maybe there’s someone somewhere… So they might as well meet.
