Must Have Been Love


On vacation in Istanbul Kaisa meets Jacob. The romance is intense and short-lived. The next morning, Jacob leaves and Kaisa does not even know his last name. Working in Oslo, she meets Andreas, which surprisingly resembles Jacob. Kaisa and Andreas gradually build up a relationship and together they move to Helsinki, but the journey is different than both of them had imagined.
MUST HAVE BEEN LOVE is about the tension that arises in the face of love, both the one you think you see coming and the one that catches you off guard. Where does the thin line between true love and the one that may turn out not to be?
