Love Never Fails (Marmor, Stein, Eisen)

Love Never Fails

She is the star of the show. Live, and week after week on TV. When Jennifer puts on her legendary smile, millions of viewers are overwhelmed. And one of them more than anyone else: twenty-six-year old Nicki Feldmaus. Nicki is madly in love with Jennifer. He has a crazy plan in mind; to kidnap Jennifer and to marry her in a little village at a far-eastern corner of the Baltic sea. He finds help in the shape of his best friend Koko, but they don't have much time; Nicki is on a 48-hour parole from prison.

Wolf Bullwitzer, the cynical producer of Jennifer's show, senses huge ratings. Instead of calling the police he orders his camera team to go after them. The chase has begun. Jennifer gradually begins to like her companions, their against-all-odds life-style, and especially Koko. Towards the end of their journey she decides to marry both kidnappers. But first they have to get rid of the producer and talk a less than enthusiastic priest into blessing their unholy menage à trois.
