Sophie (Gia Carides) is a romance writer who's used to living out her fantasies in fiction. Her amorous desires get a dose of reality when she encounters Eddie (Anthony LaPaglia), a dashing jewelery thief who says he's fallen for her. But, like one of Sophie's page-turners, their romance has a few obstacles. Eddie is scheduled to get married to his shrewish fiancée, Gloria (Rebecca Gibney). And Sophie hasn't yet revealed that she can't walk without crutches and a leg brace.
