Timo Korhonen: The Wages of War

The Wages of War is a creative documentary by Timo Korhonen about the young men who were sent to fight for Finland, but later, as fathers, brought the war back home. This is the story told by their children.

Thousands of children were forced to listen to their fathers’ shocking wartime experiences. Many men could not bring back their good selves when the war was over; they created an atmosphere of hatred around themselves when at home.

My father went to fight for peace, but brought the war back home.

The documentary focuses on the experiences of ordinary soldiers and their children. The progeny of these fierce fighters want to know the truth about the violence, shame and alcoholism of their fathers, in order not to be destroyed by it themselves. The film is a journey to forgiveness and redemption.
