RO…RO…ROMEO

Logline:

RO…RO…ROMEO is a heart-warming romantic-comedy about the stuttering farmer Herrmann, who’s life is failing to really start – until he saves injured soap-star Maxima in the mountains – and discovers, that he is able to speak fluently, if only he speaks in Shakespeare-rhymes.

RO…RO…ROMEO is an enchanting, entertaining and emotional story without being just plain and simple. Even though the story is told in an amusing and entertaining way, the questions raised are universal and serious. Am I good enough? What do I deserve?

Just like the common assumption that life is going to really start or change, as soon as this one little thing is overcome…
