Venla, a counsellor at a fertility clinic, is in a fifteen year relationship with Antero, who wishes to develop his prowess in speed skating; this self absorption continues to the detriment of his relationship. He does not want a family as he feels it would be a distraction to his aims. Venla wants to have children. She is the working half but he feels that she should support him.
Sata is a fertility doctor working at the same clinic as Venla. Her mother is dying of cancer and wishes her daughter to have a relationship of any description. She takes up with Antii, a musician of sorts, who thinks the world revolves round him and does not like interruptions from outside. What is presented are two couples who are obviously unhappy with each other.
This mutual underlying unhappiness provided the narrative drive.Both women are very attractive, smart and intelligent. They both want some fulfilment. Their professional relationship becomes more personal when Venla tells Sata that she has found a prescription for the 'morning-after' pill in Antero's pocket which indicated that he does not want a family. His words did not match his actions although he is made to realize that if he does not give Venla a child, they would split. He needs her but only to complement his ego.
This all sounds rather serious and depressing but it is not.Read more ›
