This enchanting and inspiring love story begins in the romantic Montmartre neighborhood of Paris. As Michelle, a young and spirited Parisian woman, struggles with her crutches down the treacherous Abbesses stairs, she loses her balance and begins to fall just as John passes by. Thanks to his quick actions, she is saved from a potentially fatal fall down the long and winding stairway. Looking into her beautiful and hypnotic eyes, asking if she is all right, he immediately falls in love. The feeling is mutual, and an epic romance begins.
Despite their passion, all does not go smoothly for the lovers. John, an American, must return to his job in London. Michelle has a promising career in Paris theatre. Desperate to remain in Paris, John asks for a transfer. He is faced with the dilemma of either staying in Paris with Michelle and losing his job or returning to the security of London and his English girlfriend.
More trouble erupts when John’s parents in Connecticut find out about "that French woman" after John breaks up with his girlfriend in London. Determined to end John’s relationship with Michelle, his parents threaten to destroy his career and disown him. As John fights against these obstacles, his life becomes transformed. The camaraderie of Michelle’s quirky theatre friends opens up a new and exciting world to John, a way of life he unknowingly craved.
