Movits Lind is back! He still shares a room with his obnoxious sister, has a best friend named Ruben and an old lady pal who collects handsome men. His main interests are still chess and outer space and his guinea pig Domino… However, now he has turned 12 and is no longer unkissed. He is in fact going steady with the love of his life – skate pro Beata.
But things have a tendency to get complicated for Movits, and suddenly he is dumped, unhappy, and on bad terms with Ruben. He gets his brain hijacked by a theater director and meets Eris who has a secret space project in her basement. Soon, he is standing on stage in front of 800 people, wondering once again: How did I end up here?
Knocked-Out Romeo charmingly combines humor and everyday drama, just like the popular prequel The Love Pizza.
