When best friends Dessy and Veronica arrive in Prague for a prestigious writing workshop, their priorities diverge. Dessy, fragile from a recent breakup, has come to mend her broken heart by honing her craft. Veronica has just dumped her boyfriend and plans to blow off the workshop. She'd rather master a different craft-boys.
Veronica gets right to work on her "man-wall"-one paper cutout for every hot-dude she meets-and embarks on her mission to cover a wall of their dorm by summer's end. At times, Dessy thinks her friend might be a genius. At others, Veronica seems more like an agent of chaos. As if their love lives weren't complicated enough, soon a homicidal suitemate is bent on killing Veronica and Dessy, and both girls are hiding secrets that could wreck their friendship.
Well, no one ever said breaking hearts was a simple craft...
