Sebastian never had a girlfriend. His grandfather supports him and tries to help him to find the right woman. His mother doesn´t really know anything about his life. Even his friend Axel and his therapist cannot help him to solve the problem. In the end he decides to challenge his luck and discovers that he has nothing more than a breath of luck.
