A young Hungarian couple, Andras and Lilla, have been in a loving relationship long enough for a commitment. As a stereotypical man, Andras doesn't know what he wants, but feels he hasn't played around enough and wishes he had. Then Lilla breaks the news that she is pregnant and strange things start to happen. Every morning Andras wakes up next to a new girlfriend. Although quite bewildered, Andras embraces his newfound freedom, but soon realizes that leapfrogging through relationships can be taxing. Every new Lilla has different tastes and lifestyles and he never knows what to expect. For all her faults, the original Lilla was truly his, but now women hop in and out of his life like locusts, leaving him worn out, empty and confused. As the baby's birth approaches, he starts frantically searching for his original girlfriend, afraid that he is forever stuck in the dystopian reality that is thought to be every man's dream.

The humorous be-careful-what-you-wish-for-you-may-get-it film tells a story of a man's proverbial wish magically come true-to his great misery.
