Maria is at the birthday party of her friends son where the kids are going crazy. Close to a nervous breakdown she escapes the party. But she is followed by nine-year-old Mickey, who calls her the woman of his life. Without success, she tries to get rid of the boy. Only recently she broke up with her boyfriend and is fed up with love and childish men. Her life has become a nightmare - until Mickey offers Maria the most romantic proposal of her entire life.
