A Bollywood troupe, headed by a beautiful Indian actress, sings and dances their way through the breathtaking Swiss mountains. Rajah is the personal chef of the film’s star, but he deserts the set because he has fallen desperately in love with Sonja, a Swiss girl he meets at the supermarket. Sonja is engaged to Markus and together they run Hirschen, a typical Swiss tavern. Besotted with Sonja, Rajah does everything he can to meet her again, but he runs into Markus, who, in a surprise move, takes Rajah on as the tavern’s new head chef, unwittingly giving him the chance to see the girl he has fallen in love with. Markus’s decision puts Sonja’s emotions to the test as she is torn between her love for her future husband and her growing feelings for Rajah.
