Synopsis: Alex (Schweighöfer) is a thoroughly amiable and domesticated schoolteacher living with his girlfriend Carolin (Mavie Hörbiger). But when Carolin falls for their hunky upstairs neighbor Jens (Thomas Kretschmann), she throws Alex out of their apartment. Heartbroken, Alex seeks solace and refuge with Nele (Sibel Kekilli), his lifelong best female friend who doesn't know the first thing about relationships. While Alex muses in Nele's messy apartment, thinking of his failed relationship, his buddy Okke (Elyas M'Barek) takes him under his wing to teach him how to be a "real man." Alex’s journey into the realm of so-called manly behavior fails miserably, and he starts to realize that maybe it's not a question of how to change himself but, instead, how to find a woman who loves him just the way he is.
