Does money make you cool? And happy?

14-year-old Theo is panicking: Since his Aunt Britta lost her job, he has been living with her and his mother in very close quarters and now, to top it all off, the two women have set their minds on turning half of Theo’s room into a beauty parlor. Are they crazy?

What about Theo’s privacy? On the other hand… up until now, not a single girl has ever set foot into his room. Theo’s crush, Kim, is in a relationship with Danny. It makes sense, as he is one of the cool guys who sit on the sunny side of the apartment block’s backyard. Theo and his friend Luca have to make do with the loser bench in the shadow. Would this be different, if he were rich? And then his aunt wins half a million Euros in a TV show…

Theo in search of the sunny side of life, himself, and a girlfriend – would 500,000 Euros really help in finding them?
