In this romantic comedy, photographer and bon vivant Chris is forced to move back in with his mother. Here, he finds a new calling: he becomes her dating coach.

"What is this!?", the incensed Marja (Ariane Schluter) exclaims when she discovers she plays the leading role in a commercial for a dating site, shot by her son Chris who still refuses to grow up. With this commission, he hopes for a quick escape from his native village. But of course things turn out quite differently in this feel-good movie. The candidates come flocking for his single mother, who after recovering from the shock accepts the dating challenge after all. In the process, they end up in all sorts of zany and sometimes awkward situations that bring mother and son closer together. And for both of them love strikes in unexpected ways. Jeroen Houben’s feature debut.
