Synopsis:
Full of confidence, Lila has just returned from a year’s exchange to the USA. She has scarcely arrived back in Berlin when she meets an attractive guy Chriz on a trip to the botanical gardens and falls in love at first sight. But she doesn’t realize that Chriz is the lead singer of “Berlin Mitte”, a really hip German band at the moment, and that her little sister also has a crush on him. Chriz is also fascinated by Lila because she’s so natural and he senses that is good for him. Unfortunately, however, his contract stipulates that he has to remain single so that his female fans are not disappointed. Chaos takes over in both their lives as a result: while Chriz is quite torn between his desire to succeeed as a singer and his feelings for Lila, she has to defend herself against paparazzi and the intrigues of jealous “Berlin Mitte” fans.
