The protagonist, B. Virtanen, works in an office. With almost everything in his life ending in failure, he is the true anti-hero. At work, our "hero" is supervised by his superior, Reino, and his devious head of department, Lennart Nilkén.

At home, he quarrels with his wife, Armi, and their pubescent son, Marko, a child of his time, who has everything that B. Virtanen did not have as a teenager: a smoker's cough and his name in the police files.
