Billy Schwartz is a lackluster secretary in an accounting firm who dreams of a better life. She spends her time answering phone calls at the office and being oppressed by her mother, who insists on her marrying at any cost. But all this changes when a top celebrity, Jonathan Gur, enters Billy’s life and asks her out. Billy falls head over heels for Jonathan, who proposes to her. But on their wedding day she realizes that life is not like a Disney movie. She finds herself at a crossroad, and everything she ever thought about herself and about love suddenly takes on new meaning.
