Lonely Knights

a production of film and Eichholz Film for WDR

Jürgen and Bernd have been looking for that special woman forever. Jürgen still lives with his mom, whom he takes care of, and Bernd has been in a wheelchair since he had an accident – they're both such loners they have a hard time finding a mate. The sketchy dating service Europ Love, which hooks up German men with Eastern European women, seems to be their only hope. Together with the boss of the company, his pretty interpreter, and four other bachelors, Jürgen and Bernd travel to Poland, learning a lot about themselves, each other and the difference between a glossy catalogue and the real world in the process.
