Carla has had enough. At 35, average looking, and almost entirely deaf, she is working as a secretary for a real-estate agency. One day she hires a 25-year-old trainee named Paul. He is a very good looking, but ill-mannered, thief who has just been released from prison. Carla and Paul decide to help each other out. She will teach him some good manners and he will teach her some bad ones. The initial results are extremely promising.
