“An enchanting and frequently funny portrait of two very different food start-ups.” – Sydney Film Festival

Troubled father Jani journeys across the countryside, running a small street fair and selling meat from a food truck. Helsinki business partners Maija and Reetta are about to launch a new oat-based meat substitute that could change the world. With a spunky soundtrack and mesmerizing cinematography, Entrepreneur paints a vivid portrait of three entrepreneurs—one stuck in the past, the other two striving for the future.

This film is a selection of the International Documentary Competition.
