Kaarina is an unemployed Finnish sawmill worker, who travels to Argentina to work after having enough of the short-term jobs and relationships back up north. The film is a personal statement about the ongoing global transformation of the forest industry. â€œCatchingâ€ continues from the themes of the sawmill related short film â€œIf I FallÃ¢â€, by Hannaleena Hauru in 2007. The film is opening a universal aspect to the issues about forest industry, work, and the search of love. â€œCatchingâ€ combines everyday work in a poetic context with a dramaturgic structure, following a cross-section of a tree.
