Finnish hero Lemminkäinen woos the fair damsel [[LoveInterests Annikki]], but an [[WickedWitch evil witch]] named Louhi kidnaps [[DamselInDistress Annikki]] in order to compel her brother Ilmarinen the blacksmith to build a Sampo (a magical mill that cranks out riches). Lemminkäinen and Ilmarinen travel to the witch's lair to rescue the maiden, but Louhi demands them to complete several tasks, including the construction of a Sampo. After Ilmarinen builds the Sampo, he and Annikki leave Lemminkäinen behind while he tries and fails to get the Sampo from Louhi [[NiceJobBreakingItHero and destroys it]]. When Lemminkäinen returns home, he and Annikki get married; the mood is offset, however, when news of the Sampo's destruction arrives.

* ImpossibleTask: Louhi demands that Lemminkäinen plow a field filled with [[WhyDidItHaveToBeSnakes thousands of snakes]]. This does not aid her goals in any way and is apparently for her own amusement.
