Nelly is a highly intelligent and no-nonsense girl. Her only friends are her books and she idolises the prince of Luxembourg who shares her passion for the outer space. At the news that her school basketball team is going to compete in Luxembourg, she drops her books and jumps on the basketball training ground. 16-year-old Max Minsky is ready to make a deal with her: she does his homework, he teaches her how to play basketball.
The trouble is she is turning 13 and she is Jewish: she has to prepare for her Bat Mitzvah.
Will she follow her heart or mind? Will she find her prince?
