Super-artsy New York playwright Liza is stuck in a rut. Her plays aren't paying the bills, and when her outspoken nature leads to the loss of her temp job, she's quickly running out of options. Then, in a dramatic twist worthy of one of her plays, not only is her work suddenly in demand by a young up-and-coming director, but a sprained ankle leads her into the arms of not one, but two eligible men: George, her gorgeous rescuer and uber-rich Wall Street analyst, and sweet-natured Tim, a steady ER doc. With her high artistic principles quickly casting George aside as arrogant and pretentious, Liza returns with relief to her artsy ways, only to discover she's being kicked out of her apartment and her play has been sabotaged. Maybe it's time she opened up her mind to the idea that not everything - or everyone - is quite what they first seem?
