When Gunnar Huttunen turns up in a small village to restore its run-down mill, its inhabitants are wary.
Gunnar is big. He's a bit odd. And, strangest of all, he howls wildly at night. If Gunnar is different, then he must be mad, the villagers decide.
Hounded from his home, he must find a way to survive the wilds of nature and the greater savagery of civilization.
The Howling Miller is a dark fairytale of community, conformity and our place in the world.
