Lila returns to Berlin after spending a year in the U.S., only to find that everything's changed: her school has been taken over by Paris-Hilton-Queens, her mother has just fallen in love again, and her 11-year-old sister Luzy is totally hysterical about some band Lila's never even heard of. But then, out of the blue, she meets this guy named Chriz – and falls head over heels in love with him. What Lila doesn't know is that Chriz is actually the celebrated star of Berlin Mitte, the band everyone is going crazy about. Lila doesn't have a clue what's happening as she stumbles into the biggest romantic mess you can imagine…

SINGLE BY CONTRACT is a fresh-faced romantic comedy about every girl's secret fantasy.
