In order to circumvent the curse that destroys all first marriages in her family, and in order to marry the man she loves, Isabelle has a strategy: to find a sucker, seduce him, marry him and divorce him. It would have been the perfect plan if it were not for the fact that the sucker was Jean-Yves Berthier, a travel guide editor she ends up following from the Kilimanjaro to Moscow. A nuptial journey for better and for worse.
