Mo Alexander (Karen Allen) is a young American woman on vacation in France who is stranded in Paris after missing her plane back to the U.S. In the hotel where she is staying to await her next flight, she meets Xavier de la Perouse (Thierry Lhermitte), a wealthy French banker. Xavier is married, but their attraction is overwhelming, and they fall in love. After a little hesitation, they plunge into an affair that seems doomed to fail. British director Richard Marquand had just finished the Star Wars episode Return of the Jedi when he filmed this small romantic comedy. It was Janice Lee Graham's only screenwriting success.
