Ki (Kinga) is like a tornado. Before you even speak to her, she will move in with you with her two-year-old son, spill the wine, and a Vietnamese student will start knocking at your door, asking you to help him carry in her washing machine. Before you even notice, she will ask you to borrow her several hundred in cash and  to pick her kid up from the nursery. She will use anyone she meets on her way. Will a guy with morals be able to stop her?

The world according to Ki is colourful, greedy, and never stands still. She, on the other hand, irritates and fascinates, leaving no one indifferent.
