Manuel is in love with his best friend, Mia, but she hasn't a clue, as Manuel doesn't want to ruin their friendship. Mia suddenly falls head over heels in love – with someone else. An Italian, no less. This makes it really difficult for Manuel to win Mia's heart. Then he hatches a plan: making her childhood dream come true. To do this he needs the aid of Detlev, his roommate, and his self-help group for men left by their wives, and also plenty of courage.
