Touko Laaksonen, a decorated officer, returns home after a harrowing and heroic experience serving his country in World War II, but peacetime life in Finland proves equally distressing. Touko finds refuge in his liberating art, specialising in homoerotic drawings of muscular men, free of inhabitations. His work – made famous by his signature ‘TOM OF FINLAND’ – became the emblem of a generation of men and fanned the flames of a gay revolution.
