Promotion in his mind, Pasi takes on the task of making the plywood factory more efficient in his birth town. Things get complicated when Pasi (Jussi Vatanen) meets his childhood friend Janne (Hannes Suominen) at the factory. Before the fate of the factory is known, we listen to metal, concentrate on politics, weigh friendships and face the past. Also, Pasi starts a family with Linda (Sara Soulié).

Forest Giant is based on Miika Nousiainen’s successful novel of the same name (Metsäjätti).
