Stories unfold and by the end of their session the two have alarmingly gotten attracted to each other. What follows is a crazy love story full of lies, deceits and a complicated quadrangle - Rikki and Alvira have gotten themselves as well as Anaida ad Steve in to a lovely mess, where each of them have to think quick on their feet, dancing around each other's emotions playing musical chairs and lying through their teeth.
