According to Japanese tradition, Ushi must marry before she turns thirty. Because time is running out, her family decides to marry her off to a huge sumo wrestler. It is soon clear this is a misalliance, so the singular TV host decides to look for a nicer candidate by herself. But first she will have to transform herself into the ideal woman. In this comedy, Wendy van Dijk’s well-known character travels across half the globe to find her dream man.
