Story: Ferdi is ugly. And he really wants a girlfriend. That does not work, because: ugly. But one day he meets Jonah and Jonah is blind. For the first time in his life there is reason for hope. But what Ferdi does not know is that Jonah only does that. She left the house to finish her high school diploma and needed a flat. Now she lives with her cousin Cecile in the blind dorm and plays blind. And if Ferdi finds out, he’ll probably kill himself.
