Synopsis
Paranoia, pyromania or prostitution – we will find a method for your madness. Bad Apples takes place in a fictional mental asylum in the Helsinki archipelago. In 1973, a young, driven student activist is sent to the institute against her will. The authorities – and even her husband – paint Onerva as an aggressive troublemaker; Onerva sees herself as an idealist fighting for justice. Who’s in the right? While trying to maintain her sanity, Onerva investigates the reality behind the controversial treatment practices. Will she find out the truth before the institute’s mind-bending treatment breaks her? Bad Apples creates an uneasy alternative history not far from the truth. The story is inspired by the Finnish island of Seili, which was used as a mental asylum for women until 1962. The series is driven by a core question: Were these women sent to the island to be silenced, or are they actually mentally ill? Are they rotten apples who need to be prevented from infecting healthy fruit?
Welcome to the madhouse.

Synopsis
EMERALD EYE is a serialized thriller based on the international best-selling Pekkala book series by Sam Eastland. The story is told through the eyes of the enigmatic Arno Pekkala, once the most trusted enforcer and loyal confidant of the Tsar, as he navigates an extraordinary moment in history that shook the world and birthed the bloodiest of centuries: the collapse of Tsarist Russia and the rise of the Soviet regime. The story unfolds in dual timeframes. In 1916, we follow Pekkala as he goes undercover in a terrorist cell in an attempt to subvert the growing revolution from within. Moving from the unimaginable luxury of the Winter Palace to dark, fervent streets humming with talk of revolution, Pekkala is forced to confront the inequities and suffering of a world divided. Seven years later, we see Pekkala’s emaciated form emerge from the Gulag as he is dispatched by the new regime to hunt down the last Romanov. In an epic journey across Russia, Pekkala grapples with his own true loyalties and the shattered ethics of a shifting landscape. Soon our audience will come to the realization that Pekkala’s world is terrifyingly similar to our own.

Andrey reveals to Tuomo that he has information about Tuomo’s son, who disappeared 10 years ago in Russia. Andrey believes Tuomo’s son is still alive. If Tuomo agrees to accompany him to Russia, Andrey will reveal this information. Tuomo convinces his superior to green-light the mission, but doesn’t reveal his real reason for the trip. During the trip they are constantly under the surveillance of Russian secret service FSB and the liaison officer Irina Volkova. FSB has its own agenda why it allows the mission to take place.
The adventure leads Tuomo and Andrey to an incredible world where they end up dodging bazooka rockets, being chased by military helicopters, being led over the Caucasus mountains by drug-addict mules, and encounter real alligators in river Volga.
