SYNOPSIS



What is there to be expected when a man - our leading character - sleeps with the very woman his best friend loves? A complete disaster.

Christopher is a successful architect of international repute, an attractive and undeniably charming young man with a good sense of humor. Handsome, educated and entertaining, even slightly cynical, part Don Juan, part Dr. House. Women are his passion, he loves their company but as he says, “My job comes first and don’t do roommates”. Despite this liability women adore him – Sonia is no exception. They would sleep together at odd times without analyzing their relationship or sex. They strictly follow the “love is love and sex is sex” rule only until one day Sonia´s emancipated independence has evaporated making her realize her inability to separate love from sex. Then she comes to realize she no more intends to be The-one-for-sex-only and “asks Christopher to marry her”. His answer could have been expected: “You were never a big fan of single dinners.”

The wedding eventually takes place. After a year in search of the right one, Sonia ties the knot with Martin – Christopher´s best friend. Martin always had a thing for Sonia since the times unknown but he never had the slightest clue of the “sex-only-no-strings” deal she had with Christopher. (we all have a history, don’t we?)

Christopher and Martin have been friends since they were kids and their friendship is not the only thing they have in common. There’s PIC, and Marilyn. PIC stands for Play it Cool a.k.a. the Pinheads Club, when founded years ago just for the kick of it. And Marilyn being a fancy sports car they have turned into a finely tuned machine through the years.

Marilyn is the traditional subject of Christopher’s and Martin’s wagers. Although the car is currently in Martin’s possession the guys make another bet at his wedding party. Christopher, the notorious ladies’ man has to arrange that three of Martin’s close friends find attractive girlfriends within three months time. Should he succeed, he`ll become the happy owner of Marilyn. Seems like an easy mission to accomplish, doesn`t it?

Well, you won’t know until you get to meet the three men in question. Actually, they are totally losing it in the “love and/or sex - relationship” department. They are completely obsessed with their professions which leaves them with no time for personal maintenance or let alone, for following fashion trends. One of them – Richard, is a lawyer, the other is Matias – a physiotherapist, inseparable from his pet buddy – a white bulldog called Benny. The third one is a young artist Dan, an unofficial PIC member. He`s a short, four-eyed geeky teenager who happens to have knowledge about something that Christopher is interested in. That`s why Christopher coaches him secretly (in spite of Martin`s ban, since Dan is Martin`s kid brother).

So far, both Richard and Matias have channeled all their energy into their work which made them renowned experts in their areas of expertise, but sadly, the same made them struggle with their private-life affairs. Richard`s wife is leaving him for a fitness-club coach while Matias – the therapist, lives with his “virtual girlfriend” and the dog. Their common denominator is: totally clueless when it comes to women.

Christopher tutors and trains his three disciples the best way he can. Their lessons take place in a variety of bars, fitness clubs and beauty spas, as well as theaters and dance studios. Christopher becomes the “date doctor” and love guru in one teaching the guys the art of eloquence, fundaments of appropriate behavior when keeping a lady`s company, all that including the necessary make-over leading to their change of image. It is Simona, Christopher’s good lady-friend and an attractive model, who helps him considerably to pull this thing off.. Will Christopher succeed at turning the three non eligible ones into desirable bachelors to win back his dream car?

Wait and see how things play out. However, one thing is clear. The whole experience will have profound impact on the protagonists. It’s Christopher who will get most affected once he comes to realize that he can’t sleep around and at the same time have a meaningful relationship with a special girl. The moment such a special girl comes into the scene Christopher’s PIC handbook fails to serve..
