COMPLETE IDIOT

Not all men are idiots – some are complete idiots.

Simon Peters, a passionless telephone salesman, is down on his luck, has no girlfriend and is about to turn thirty. His girlfriend left him a year ago and a new situation is nowhere in sight. Neither the Cologne nightlife scene nor the attempts by his Croatian cleaning lady to hook him up with someone offer any sort of hope of sexual fulfillment. But one day, behind the window of the All American Coffee Company he sees the woman of his dreams: Marcia P. Garcia, a South American expert in the art of frothing milk. She has a sensational smile and an equally sensational body. Simon is certain – she’s the one. The woman of his life. The mother of his bilingual children. Just one little thing stands in the way of a romantic wedding: Simon still has to approach her first.
