Modern day dating can be a real headache. For men with little experience or those hurt by an ugly divorce, the idea of looking for a wife in a foreign country, known for its solid family values, might seem like a viable solution…

Odessa, Ukraine: full of rich culture, beautiful architecture, pulsating discos, and busloads of

lonely middle-aged Western guys looking to land hot 20-year-old brides. Burned by women back home, guys from Minnesota to Marseilles are heading East - but can they tell the difference between the girl of their dreams and the gold diggers? This seductive documentary follows a dozen delightfully awkward guys through a comedy of cultural misconceptions on a 10-day hunt for true love.

“Far more entertaining than reality TV’s “The Bachelor,” but with its own share of disturbing moments… good-looking, intelligently structured film.” — Alissa Simon, Variety

“Can’t-look-away reality show meets intriguing investigative journalism: Ten bachelors—ranging from sad to despicable—go on a matchmaking tour to Odessa, Ukraine, in an attempt to find wives in just ten days in this fantastic documentary. “—Time Out Chicago
