The basic narrative line of this documentary follows a rather peculiar workshop held in Zagreb.

The aim of the workshop was to teach the participants one very basic skill – how to seduce a woman in order to get her to bed. Our documentary is following changes, fears, small successes and big misunderstandings of the twelve workshop participants. The participants were heterogeneous, coming from different countries (Austria, Germany, and USA) and were of different skin color. This interesting group of people had two things in common: they found themselves in the school benches in Sheraton hotel in Zagreb and they all have one goal – to seduce a Balkan girl.
