Tomi Streiff directs this screwball road movie about a guy, a girl, and a cow. Country bumpkin Ela Thier (Isabella Parkinson) is a librarian journeying off for a new job in a remote German village. A trusting soul, she gets bilked out of all her money by a sleazy con man and is forced to hitchhike. She is lucky enough to be picked up by burly plumber Tim (Oliver Reinhard), who is driving his truck back to his black forest burg. He is set to get hitched in a couple of days -- his wedding gift, the titular bovine, is in the hauling bay -- and he is beginning to have second thoughts. With the appearance of Ela, Tim starts having third and fourth thoughts about his impending nuptials.
