Sweet and sincere Sandy Davenport is a performer on a live comedy show who strives to be a success both to herself and in the eyes of the rest of the cast. One night during Memorial Day weekend, the car she’s riding in is rear-ended and she breaks her nose, her wrist, and worst of all, her self-esteem.
Craig Lucas is a rich and successful plastic surgeon in New York. He also happens to be in the car that plows into Sandy’s cab. His brother Donnie was behind the wheel, and he doesn’t spare much thought for the people he hit, but Craig immediately feels remorse and seeks to make things right for Sandy.
He goes to visit her at the hospital and offers his services to help her nose not only work again, but look like it used to. At first, Sandy is hesitant to trust one of the men who caused her pain, but the more she gets to know him, the more she likes him.
