Arnold is a confident and popular fireman who loves his job and his girlfriend. But when his romantic wedding proposal goes up in smoke, he develops a fear of heights and starts suffering from weird visions. As a result, he is unable to do his job right and gets benched: he now has to work as a stand-by fireman at a local Christmas market - all of which he hates. Enter Eszter, the teacher who prepares an over-the-top holiday performance with a bunch of ten-year-olds. It is she who starts to cure Arnold’s vertigo - and maybe even his broken heart.
