Franky has never allowed herself to fall in love because she is too busy dealing with her inner chaos. Her best friend Katja knows her changing moods, but Franky has never revealed to anyone, that she has an old Hotel in her head, inhabited by four weird but lovable characters who can switch into her body in the real world by using the elevator. When she falls for Katja´s new boyfriend things get out of control.
A quirky love-comedy about finding your true self (or more than one).
