    • Synopsis
    • Tiffany Blechschmid is a neurotic, moody, superstitious, contradictory and – no surprises here – single young woman in her late 20s. Although she sells fortune cookies in her Berlin gourmet shop, she has a great personal mistrust of good fortune, and especially of happiness. It seems like every hard-won moment of happiness is followed by some kind of disaster. It’s enough to make her question the whole concept of happiness. Why is everyone so determined to find it? Does it always have something to do with love? And why do we always mess up just when we’re getting close to it, like when the man of Tiffany’s dreams suddenly appears in the flesh? Fortunately, she can rely on helpful maternal advice from beyond the grave, stripping stewardesses, hovering grand pianos, dogs with character... In many magical moments, Tiffany learns that life is much more wonderful than she’d ever feared!
