The stage is set for the play of a lifetime: but it's the romantic drama backstage that has everyone applauding.
Paul and Cath are the perfect creative team. He's an up-and-coming theater director and she's his unflappable, rock-steady stage manager.
If Cath's had to bury her unrequited affection for Paul for ten long years to keep things professional, it's just the price she pays for a career she loves, working with her best friend by her side.
Until he hires her old nemesis as the leading lady for a new play that's their chance to make it big.
Handling temperamental actors is one thing, but watching this diva throw herself at Paul makes Cath miserable. It's another complication when the leading man shows his attraction to her. Suddenly, an unexpected new job offer seems like a good idea.
But then Paul upends her world by declaring his love and sparking a passionate encounter.
It's both a dream come true and a nightmare as Cath is convinced that personal and professional relationships don't mix and getting involved could jeopardize the play-and both their careers.
Can Paul flip the script and set the stage to convince Cath otherwise or is their love always destined to wait in the wings?
