When his uncle marries a woman from Thailand, Dennis decides to try his own luck on a trip to Pattaya, as it seems that love is easier to find there. He knows that his mother would never accept another woman in his life, so helies and tells her that he is going to Germany for a competition. Hectic Pattaya turns out to be a huge cultural shock for him.
