Summer 1962, Olli Mäki has a shot at the world championship title in featherweight boxing. From the Finnish countryside to the bright lights of Helsinki, everything has been prepared for his fame and fortune. All Olli has to do is lose weight and concentrate. But there is a problem – he has fallen in love with Raija. 

It was 2011, and I met Olli and Raija in Kokkola. Olli has severe Alzheimer’s disease now, but he still remembers his old stories. He told me about this championship fight back in 1962, and when he ended his story by saying: “It was the happiest day of my life,” he had this smile on his face that forced me to ask incredulously “How come?” I didn’t know much about boxing myself, but it was still obvious to me that if you’re preparing for a world championship fight, you should be 100% dedicated to the fight. Then, as I started to dig deeper into Olli’s story, I realised that it was full of beautiful details and complexity which lifted it from the average into something unique. Art is in the details, I’ve heard.“
