12 year old Anton gets a piece of information he would rather have lived without. He is an accident -a result of broken rubber. Anton needs to find a way to restore balance in the universe and create meaning out of his existence. His idea is to do something selfless that is really worthwhile. With help from his best friend, Ine, he decides to find a girlfriend for his dad. That is not as simple as it sounds.
