A German man is visiting Bulgaria to meet his possible future wife for the first time. He is having a culture shock in an unlicensed taxi. A young Bulgarian boy is having a hard day in his suburbia. The boy's mother has been preparing a traditional Bulgarian soup. She is trying her best with her hairstyle, dress-up and make-up. The boy comes home, the mother has been waiting for him. While the two are having a little family clash in the hallway, the doorbell rings. It is the German man. The two adults are trying to build a conversation at the dining table. It is not working, because of the language barrier between them. The boy is eating the soup and observing the situation. Suddenly he spots a cockroach crawling on the guest's sleeve. Is this meeting going to become a disaster? Or maybe there still is a chance to become a family? This short film is an observation of a situation, where people with different cultures meet. This film is set in Bulgaria, and such stories are found everywhere in our global world.
