Fred wants to get married to Mara, who is a single parent. The hitch is that Mara's son Linus hates Fred and is bent on getting rid of this unwanted male competition. There is only one way to win Linus' favor: to get him an original basketball personally signed by ALBA-Berlin superstar Mercurio Mueller. And the only place to get it is the handicapped tribune, where Mercurio Mueller throws the ball after each record basket. Fred sees no other option: he needs to pretend to be handicapped in order to gain access to the handicapped tribune. When Fred actually catches the ball he is the star of the evening. The following media hype forces him to lead an exhausting and comical double life in the course of which he finally finds his true love.
