Leslie lives with her son Jonas and figures it’s about time for an improvement in their lives. The kid’s father is gone, she’s ready to hang up her crummy waitress job and acting school isn’t bringing in any cash. Leslie can’t even pay the rent but the last thing she’s willing to do is accept handouts from her friends and family. Her friend Natalie comes up with a crazy idea:
Leslie should celebrate a faked marriage with the attractive and educated Koofi, who, having just lost his job as a computer specialist, has lost his residency permit, or “Blue Card”, as well.
For both, it’s a perfect arrangement. Leslie earns 20,000 Euro and Koofi is able to remain in Germany. Just Edmund Krüger of the Immigration Department finds their “marriage” suspicious and begins an investigation.
This requires Leslie and Koofi to really act the part, living and spending all their time together. After spending so much time with Leslie and getting to know her, Koofi realizes that he has fallen in love. Leslie and Jonas have been enjoying their time with Koofi; for Jonas he has been like a father and best friend. When Leslie realizes that she too has fallen in love, it’s too late.
Their deception is exposed and Koofi is forced to leave the country. Feeling utterly helpless, Leslie can do nothing more than watch in frustration from the runway…
