Break Up Man

Paul has an unusual job: As employee of a "separation agency", he helps people who can't or won't dump their respective romantic partners on their own. Not surprisingly, he witnesses many emotional turmoils on the job. Therefore, he keeps his distance to his own girlfriend Natalie - as his everyday experiences have taught him that overbearing feelings eventually lead to heartbreak. His routine is unexpectedly altered when he dumps sensitive Toto on behalf of Toto's girlfriend. Poor Toto can't cope with the bad news, and devastated, he clings to Paul. Unable to get rid of the unwanted company, Paul takes him along on a business trip through Germany. With Toto as a sidekick, Paul's once ordered life takes a turn to the wild side.
