Calamari Union tells the story of sixteen men, all called Frank (inspired by Frank Armoton) apart from one man called Pekka. Collectively the Franks and Pekka are unhappy with life in Kallio, a working-class district of Helsinki, and decide to move to Eira, an upper-class district, imagining it to be unspoiled. In fact the two districts are not very far apart, but the journey across the city takes on epic proportions, as each of the men falls by the wayside through marriage, work or death.
