Franky Five Star
When things get too much, Franky checks into a hotel, which exists only in her head. The hotel is the home of four entirely different personalities, who alternately rule over her actions
in real life.
Franky seems to people around her unpredictable and erratic. But actually, she has a little secret. Within, she lives with four other characters named Lenni (12), Frank (35), Ella (30) and Ms. Franke (50) in a old-fashioned hotel. In real life, all five inhabit Franky's body at different times. When Franky lands in bed with Hasi, who is actually the new boyfriend of her best female friend Katja, not only the friendship is put to the test through her different personalities.
