Youkali revolves around the intersecting paths of two protagonists who come from different generations and backgrounds. Kenny, a 31-year- old musician from Sri Lanka, seeks to advance his career in Berlin and rents a room in 80-year- old Rola’s house on the outskirts of the city. Conflicting circumstances develop throughout the course of the film, bringing these two people together as they ultimately bridge the gap between cultural and generational differences. The plot unfolds in the setting of everyday life, and underscores the value of cultural exchange through this tale of two unlikely friends coexisting in a shared living space.
