Maarten, a scientist approaching middle age, lives with his sickly mother so he can take care of her. While he is very close with his mother, he hasn’t had any other successful relationships with the opposite sex — in fact, he is still a virgin. However, God himself enters Maarten’s dream and gives him one week to have sex. If Maarten fails, he will be struck dead. Fearing for his life, he develops a dashing alter ego to help guide him through dating.
