Clemens starts a new job as a massage therapist in a luxury hotel. He is shy but sensitive and likes to work with his guests' energies. The ladies he massages fall for his hands and make advances to him that throw him off balance. Lara, who works in the kitchen, tries it the hard way. She shakes Clemens up and brings him out of his shell. She is the knife, he is the spoon. Opposites attract. She tries to rid him of his fears, he tries to rid her of her addiction. Clemens finds Lara at the beach, carries her home and cleans the vomit from her face. They light boats on fire, take a nightdive into the hotel pool and drink coffee at the laundry cart. Clemens plays the guitar and Lara dances to it, although she can't. An unlikely couple falls in love.
