A chance encounter at a fancy restaurant — where Amos goes to celebrate his ninth anniversary with his girlfriend Vanessa, and where Noa (international superstar and fashion mogul) is avoiding public speculation about a break-up from her Hollywood lover – leads to unexpected sparks and an even more unlikely love story. Can their love survive her jet-setting lifestyle, her overbearing agent, his unworldly family, both their exes and the media?
