Widowed Janet Herbert has two children to raise. Out of work and with unemployment benefits running low, she needs a knight in shining armour to sweep her off her feet and carry her away on a big white stallion. The stranger in town is very handsome—and very French. But the more she learns, the more uncertain she is. Jean Gagnon has just done seven years for a crime he says he didn't commit.
