Mehiläiskesä (Summer of Bees)

On a particularly hot summer, Eedi, suffering from eco-anxiety, decides to quit their studies and start beekeeping. Eedi gets reluctant help from their mother Anne who, rather than fearing for the future, is scared of every single little bee. Soon enough they notice that saving the bees is not an easy job.
