It’s Sunday. Evan drives his beloved Porsche to the old village church like always, but singing hymns with weird Norman and the old folks doesn’t seem cool anymore. Driving home with his eccentric aunt, he has a shocking near miss with a vacationing American family. Squashed in the back of his Porsche, they are coming to stay in his room. His aunt starts with a prayer while Evan tries desperately to show the attractive daughter that he’s, actually . . .er, cool. Or is he?
