Lucy Hill (Renée Zellweger) is an ambitious up-and-coming executive living in Miami. She loves her shoes, she loves her cars and she loves climbing the corporate ladder. When she is offered a temporary assignment—in the middle of nowhere—to restructure a manufacturing plant, she jumps at the opportunity, knowing that a big promotion is close at hand.

What begins as a straight-forward assignment becomes a life-changing experience as Lucy discovers greater meaning in her life and most unexpectedly, the man of her dreams (Harry Connick, Jr.).
