Max and Maria are from different countries with contrasting traditions and life expectations. She ́s from Brazil while he ́s from Germany. She ́s a pastry chef on her way to Venice to fulfill a lifelong dream and he ́s a successful business consultant who just recently realized that although his professional life has been a success, his personal life has been a complete failure. If you were Max or Maria, would you spend a day in “the most romantic city in the world” with a complete stranger?
