As Beatrice’s mother has another go at rehab, she can’t go on holiday with her. Beatrice has to spend her vacations with her newly-widowed grandmother although she would be able to cope with her situation alone! Anyway, to make her stay at her grandmother’s at least semi-bearable, Beatrice has to distract her by all means. The best bet is to find the ideal husband for her grandmother, but this turns out to be extremely difficult.
After all their vacation home is not in a megacity but almost in a jungle. When Beatrice gets to know awkward and talkative Toffie, the neighborhood boy, she decides to find a new husband for her granny with his help. And – surprise, surprise – there is no time to be bored when Toffie is around!
