What do you do when a supposedly dream prince leaves his princess in the lurch just before their planned wedding? Society reporter Merlin finds a place to stay after this disaster in the male-only shared flat her brother Simon has just left due to his wife and baby. The self-pity of the endlessly sobbing co-tenant gets on the nerves of barkeeper Jacob, who can’t stand being with a woman for longer than one night. His plan is to organise a one-night stand for Merlin so that she has something else to occupy her mind. The plan works out. As a result, however, Jacob sets a relationship roundabout in motion of which he loses control fairly quickly. The lads’ trip to the Ballermann, to which Merlin even invites herself, doesn’t help much either...
