Gut gegen Nordwind

Emmi Rothner wants to cancel her subscription to the magazine “Like” by e-mail, but because of a typing error her messages are sent to Leo Leike. After Emmi has repeatedly sent e-mails to the wrong address, Leo explains to her that she’s made a mistake. An unusual correspondence ensues, of the kind one can have only with a stranger. As the two of them gradually get to know and understand each other, and their aquaintance develops into casual intimacy, they eventually have to face the inevitable question: Will the feelings of love that have been sent, received and saved stand up to a meeting in real life? And if they do, what comes next?.
