An architect and an ophthalmologist–who has commissioned a house from the architect–begin a heated argument on an uninhabited islet, right where the fancy new house is supposed to be built. The honourable, sharp-tongued, and heavily smoking ophthalmologist scolds the young, self-conscious, and ambitious architect, who consequently wants to go home right away. And then the outboard motor breaks down. Yksinen is an intelligent situation comedy about how a modern man survives when all the technology he depends on suddenly fails. It examines big choices in life hilariously, practically, and cruelly. Yksinen is a story about the impossibility of togetherness, but also about how close another human being, a fellow creature, really is–right now.
