Jan wants to marry the German-Italian Sara. Nothing spectacular. Just a small civil marriage. But then Jan had not quite reckoned with his future father-in-law. Antonio, who had come to Germany in 1965 as a guest worker and is married to the German Ursula, insists on having the wedding in Southern Italy. Basta! Jan, Sara, and her parents set off to Campobello to organize the large wedding with the entire clan. Confronted with a southern temperament, foreign cuisine, soft beds and rigid bureaucracy, Jan is forced to ask himself one day whether Sara and her family are really the right thing for him...
