Does everything to get a lover.
Valerie sits in a wheelchair. She is smart and witty. She does the housekeeping for her father and is the secretary of the local basketball team. Like all teenagers she dreams about romance, about love.
Reluctantly Valerie endures her father's love affaires. He is a widower and keeps on bringing along new girlfriends. One by one she kicks them out. When her best friend starts bragging about her new boyfriend, Valerie has had enough of it. She wants a lover too!
In a foolish mood, she and her girlfriend put a wild ad on the Internet, inquiring for an extravagant lover...
The new postman seems to be a nice boy. But when Peter, a very handsome guy, comes in to enroll in the basketball team and moreover shows a "healthy" interest in Valerie, she has lost her mind. The postman and her girlfriend warn her for Peter. But in vain. She has madly fallen in love with him.
Meanwhile dad has got a new lover: the sensual Samantha. It doesn't take long until Peter and Samantha get caught on adultery. Valerie is very disappointed. Hence, she still doubts. Maybe Samantha had seduced Peter and he had been a victim?...
After a lot of complications (cut-off trousers, a bumped Ferrari, a dog in heat, etc.) it finally becomes clear that Peter wasn't prince charming. That's when a new candidate shows up: Billy, an Internet-freak (with similar vocabulary:-)). He complies with the demands that Valerie had put in her ad: "rough, savage hair, an eyepatch, Scottish kilt, bagpipes, muscles, director of a dairy farm and as hot as a furnace"...
At the end it will become clear again that the darkest hour is before dawn.
