Max and Katrin or The Christmas Dog
Max und Kathrin oder Der Weihnachtshund
Max hates the Advent season, Christmas in Vienna in particular, and generally speaking, the season horrifies him. He would fly to the South Seas, if it were not for a minor problem called Kurt, Maxs dog, who of course has to stay behind. Therefore Max looks for somebody willing to look after his dog. Katrin sniffs a chance here: She hates Christmas too, the Christmas party at her parents in particular, including the advances made by her fiancÚ Aurelius - who is absolutely perfect, or so it seems. Year after year, she looks out for loopholes to stay away from the Christmas disaster, but alas! As Katrin's father is extremely allergic to dogs, a dog would be a great opportunity. Things no doubt take a different turn than originally planned
