Gripping Finnish crime drama THE MAN IN ROOM 301 arrives at SBS On Demand


Summer 2007, Finland. While the Kurtti family are spending their annual holidays in their cabins in the land of a thousand lakes, the family is struck by a tragedy.

Tommi, 2 years old, is killed by a gunshot. Elias, a 12-year-old neighbour, is blamed for the death of the child.

Summer 2019, Greece. 12 years after the tragedy, the family receives a threatening anonymous letter. In the Greek resort where they are enjoying their holidays, they come across a man that looks just like Elias (Viljami Lahti), in room 301.

Is it really Elias? What is he doing there? What if he was wrongfully accused of Tommi’s death and came to retaliate against the family?

The family have to face each other and the consequences of their past actions with their lives at stake. They are all forced to question themselves, how far would you go for your loved ones?

In Finnish with English subtitles.

The Man In Room 301 – Australian Premiere – Thursday, 15 April 2021 on SBS On Demand (all six episodes available to stream)
