Annu (Iina Kuustonen) is getting married and trying to decide whether to keep her name. A small choice grows into an all-out war when her best friend (Lotta Kaihua) sees this as a question of equality between the sexes while Annu’s husband (Santtu Karvonen) tries to play it down. But in the end it’s just a name – or is it?

Just a Name premiered at Aspen Shortsfest in 2015 and was screened at several prominent short film festivals around the world. It is directed by renowned actress and theatre director and Tiina Lymi.
