Katrin (JESSICA SCHWARZ) is a drop-dead gorgeous career woman and a hopeless romantic. They could be the perfect couple were it not for a few obstacles. Jan cannot resist even the most primitive sexual stimuli -- like his secretary Angie's (NADJA BECKER) plunging neckline. Katrin, who is so clearly capable of higher intellect, has no resistance to alpha male Jonathan's (UWE OCHSENKNECHT) shameless sexual advances.
