From the director of DON JUAN DE MARCO and the producers of the Academy Award®-winning movie THE LIVES OF OTHERS, comes this charming and fun-filled romantic comedy about Paolo, an Italian living in Paris who is very much in love with his German girlfriend Greta. Just when he has finally proposed to her, he bumps into Cécile, a gorgeous French girl on a bicycle.

A hot blooded Italian to his very core, Paolo can’t get the image of this beauty out of his head and after a round of bad advice given to him by his best friend, Jean-Michel, Paolo attempts to meet Cécile to put an end to his obsession and ends up hitting her with his tour bus. Since Cécile is now a single mother with a broken arm and a broken leg, Paolo “feels compelled” to care for her and her two little children.

As Paolo races back and forth, juggling his two lives day and night and at the same time trying to hide his misadventures with Cécile from suspicious Greta, one lie builds upon another, until his once normal life is totally upside-down. Will love finally conquer all?
