Fred and Luisa have a unique relationship in which they’ve created their own world. At their wedding they are increasingly confronted with their social roles. As their families from Argentina and Germany are brought together, intercultural prejudices arise. A tradition of kidnapping the bride shakes the equality of the couple. Can love grow in this claustrophobic role play of marriage?
