Stephan Fischer (Felix Klare), a young engineer from Germany, installs a large offset printing machine in Bucharest and falls in love with 26-year-old Brindusa Hergeleghiu (Alexandra Maria Lara), the company's interpreter. The wedding is just around the corner. 

Unfortunately, the 55-year-old mafia print shop owner and nouveau riche turncoat Nikolai Jorga (Razvan Vasilescu) had a love affair with Brindusa until recently and now tries to prevent the wedding by all means. The parents (Manfred Zapata / Katharina Thalbach), who have travelled from Germany for the wedding, are also full of prejudice against their future daughter-in-law from Romania. Torn between her love for two men and two different European cultures, Brindusa stands there not knowing where she belongs.
