Gigi Robinson is a beautiful woman in her late 20's who has worked very hard to put her boyfriend through medical school and wants to get married, have kids and live the fairy-tale life. Unfortunately, she's in a holding-pattern on standby because her boyfriend won't commit. Ironically, while flying standby at an airport she meets Race Monroe, a successful businessman in his 50's who is funny, charming and shares her values. There's one small problem: He's married, has kids and his own baggage to deal with. With a crew of hysterically zany characters surrounding Race and Gigi, it puts them on a collision course of an overnight stay that will change their lives forever. Written by
