At a party, Daniel pretends to be Jewish to impress Anne. The pretty bookstore owner specializes in Jewish literature in her bookshop, volunteers at a Jewish home for the elderly, and is also a close friend of the Jewish author Schlomo Wisniewski. When Anne and Daniel become a couple, their friends Laura and Tobias have an inkling that Daniel's hoax will soon have to be caught. His initially small con turns into an unmanageable web of white lies that Daniel can't get out of. Will Anne also love him when she learns that he is not Jewish at all?

Produced by the renowned production companies ConradFilm ("Dark Woods") and Bavaria Fiction ("Das Boot") and directed by multiple award-winning director Wolfang Murnberger, this charming RomCom will strike right to the heart.
