Sometimes it happens gently. Sometimes it comes with a kick in the pants. It's called "leaving home" – and Inken is treated to the more unpleasant version. She and her friends Lucy and Lena decide to share a place, but somehow, three-bedroom flats and non-existent budgets just don't go together... The ideal solution: rich boyfriends with big apartments. They've got the looks and the drive, all they need are the right "victims." And once again, the stars seem to be against them: Lucy and Lena fall in love with guys who aren't who they claim to be. And Inken plays domina for her bondage-loving neighbor instead of responding to the young man who loves her... But though they end up in a tiny, run-down place, they discover that a dump can be a palace if you're sharing it with people you really like. And when they start sorting out their priorities concerning men, it turns out that they were indeed deceived by appearances – but not by the love in their boyfriends' hearts!

In this fresh, young "chick-flick" comedy, director Peter Gersina recaptures the sassy tone and spirited feeling that made Girls on Top an international theatrical success in 2001.
