When power monger Vivien (Jane Seymour) at the leading New York fashion magazine, ousts photographer Danielle (Giulia Nahmany), a reassessment of life is in order by way of a trip home to Romania where Danielle can relax, and hide-out from the furor that has happened. She gets back in touch with nature, her mother, and her best friend, and begins to ease into small village life again. When she decides to make a dress for her friend’s wedding, and the design takes off, Danielle realizes that there is more to life, and her own creativity, than what she thought.
Though she gets drunk in one scene and dances on a bar, this little romance film is otherwise quite mild in nature, where there are no more than a couple of short romantic kisses, modest dress, and no harsh language. But love is in the air for Danielle when she meets a handsome British mogul, who has been “hiding” as well, posing as a simple businessman who’s come to stay in the village for a short time, so when the two start spending time together, it isn’t long before a misunderstanding threatens to tear them apart.
When fame comes quickly for Danielle through her new designs, she lands a spot at Fashion Week, and flies back to New York to show-up the boss that tried to do her in. However, her new found life is threatened in Romania while she is away, and Danielle must overcome some hurdles to discover the truth about her boyfriend’s involvement.
With good intentions overall, this duo is destined to love more than each other, as they extend their hearts to the entire town and change everyone’s lives for good..
