Because he can't find love in Denmark, painfully shy bodybuilder Dennis sets off for Thailand to escape his domineering mother and find a wife. Dennis is a reserved, well-mannered, polite guy whose gentle personality sharply contrasts with his brawny looks and imposing physique. He is played by the real Danish bodybuilding champion Kim Kold. Motivated by his uncle, who brought home a paid-for 'bride' from Thailand, Dennis decides to follow suit. But the crowded streets of Pattaya and the hardcore sex tourism culture have nothing to do with romance.. "Until Teddy Bear, I don't think I'd ever seen a serious, respectful portrayal of a bodybuilder in a non-documentary film." (A Hole in the Floor)
