It’s been almost a year since Christian’s wife Anna left him and their 16 year old son Oscar to live out her dream of working as a sports agent in Buenos Aires. Having fallen head over heels in love with Argentina’s top football star Juan Diaz, Anna has substituted her drab, suburban life for the glamorous jet set circles of Buenos Aires.
Since the break-up Christian has been spiraling into despair. His Copenhagen wine shop is on the brink of bankruptcy, he drinks too much, and his son is becoming alarmingly moody and withdrawn.
Finally one day Christian decides to go to Argentina officially to sign the divorce papers but in his heart secretly hoping to win back his wife, and with her, his life.
When Christian and Oscar arrive in Buenos Aires they discover the real reason behind Anna’s relentless insistence on getting the divorce papers signed. Anna and Juan are getting married! With time definitely not on his side, Christian has to move fast if he wants to save what’s left of his relationship with Anna – is it really over between the two of them?
In a wild, comic tour-de-force through soccer, wine and tango, Christian is thrown into a torrent of events. In a clash of cultures and through encounters with the housemaid Fernanda and the grumpy, old wine farmer Mendoza, Christian might just learn how to let go of his wife and instead grab hold of his own life. –The Match Factory
