Nach einem fünfjährigen England-Aufenthalt kehrt Percy Averhoff in die Heimat zurück. Und dort muss feststellen, dass seine übertrieben fürsorglichen Eltern schon eine Braut für ihn ausgesucht haben. Die Wahl fiel allerdings nicht ganz uneigennützig auf Änne Osterkamp, denn sie ist "rein zufällig" die Tochter eines Geschäftsfreundes der Eltern. Um seinen Eltern zu zeigen, dass er seine zukünftige Ehefrau immer noch selbst aussucht, antwortet er auf eine sympathisch klingende Kontaktanzeige. Das Schreiben führt zum Erfolg, Amalie Hartwig ist wirklich ein entzückendes Mädchen ... Percy ahnt jedoch nicht, was hinter der ganzen Sache steckt.

After staying in England for five years, Percy Averhoff returns back to his homeland.  And he discovers, that his overly protective parents have already picked out a bride for him.  However, the choice of Anne Osterkamp was not entirely altruistic, then it just so happens, “by the purest of coincidences”, that she’s the daughter of a business acquaintance of his parents.  To show his parents, that he will be the one to pick out his bride, he answers a newspaper ad.  The letter he sent leads to a meeting with the person who placed the ad, Amalie Hartwig; and she’s a really attractive girl.  But Percy hasn’t a clue what’s really behind her placing an ad in the newspaper for a husband.
