In this unusual German comedy, an arrogant and ultra macho misogynist, Fred, is killed by his wife and finds himself at the gates of hell begging for mercy. He is given one more chance on the condition that he return to earth and teach three disillusioned women that love exists. He has three days. Guided by his late mother, who has been reincarnated as a plucked turkey, Fred is slowly introduced to his assignments. He is next assisted by the terminally shy and frowzy Rita, who is considered to be hopeless in the love department. When Fred explains the situation, Rita agrees to help and soon blossoms into a lovely young woman.
