A widowed father and a hard working student find their professional arrangement complicated by some very personal feelings in this uplifting romantic comedy featuring Stacy Keach and Dean Stockwell. David Chandler (Brennan Elliot) is a single father in need of serious help; his nine year old son Ben (Uriah Shelton) and teenage daughter Emily (Natalie Dreyfuss) seem intent on driving away every nanny the hapless father hires, and in order to keep things under control dad's going to need an extra pair of hands to help out around the house. Enter Kate: a devoted student who divides her time between earning her teaching degree and acting as caretaker to her ailing father. Kate needs a job, and she's smart enough to beat the Chandler kids at their own game. Not only that, but Kate also understands exactly what the kids are going through since she too lost her mother when she was just a young girl. Before long, Kate has managed to break though to Ben, but winning over Emily won't be nearly as easy. Later, as Kate begins making headway with Emily, the nurturing nanny and overburdened father begin to realize their feelings for one another run much deeper than either had ever anticipated.
