When Vlad is jealous Clara is sure of herself. When Clara is enthusiastic, Vlad is bored. When Vlad is happy, Clara is depressed. When Clara is furious, Vlad is calm. Only when Vlad becomes Prince Charming, does Clara finally become his princess.

Tired of waiting for love to happen to her Clara (33) decides to make it happen. Passive and kind, Vlad (31) is the perfect partner. Her project? To live the perfect love. Her inspiration? Books, films and folklore. On their first date they plan their perfect love like a project with clear checkpoints. Then they start to play. For a while they are happy. But he hates being alone more than he loves her. This makes her fearful and anxious, and probing his love with little games. He tries to be patient and console her but finally breaks into anger. In desperation she goes swimming far into the sea to test him. He barely manages to save her from drowning. He decides to break up but before, they go to the countryside and play a game becoming fantastic characters from a Romanian fairytale. Fantasy takes over and they will emerge from it more mature.
