Rules of Single Life

Sinkkuelämän säännöt

A romantic documentary about love in a foreign city. Four Bulgarian guys emigrated to Helsinki and disillusioned in love decide to give themselves a task: they need to find new girlfriends in Helsinki in 12 months. Otherwise – they figure – they won’t cope with Nordic ladies ever again.

The men start well organized self-development and women hunting. Internet dates, sport dates, courses in dancing and tantric sex – not to mention a date with a whole female volleyball team.

Still, love is always full of surprises. The past – especially ex-wives and ex-girlfriends – won’t leave the men in peace. And the present is also full of surprises: Why don’t all women put their photos on the dating sites of the Internet? Why do Finnish men have less hair than Bulgarian men? Is sex a cure for solitude? And can anyone anywhere really get to know another person in 12 months?
