Driven from her small town by the humiliation of a cheating husband, Myra throws herself into a completely different world. She arrives in the big city as naïve as ever, but soon realizes that she must learn to believe in herself. She first must decide what she would like to do for a living. She applies to what seems like every job position in every restaurant in Manhattan. With very little to advertise on her résumé, her job search is lengthy and difficult.
Finding support in unexpected places, Myra surprises herself with the success that follows. Her social life far surpasses her wildest dreams. She meets a man she had once idolized: her favorite musician, Eric. To her surprise, Eric continues to express interest in spending time with her, despite having a model for a girlfriend. Their friendship helps her through the rough times of acclimating to city life and job hunting.
Eric had been a superstar when Myra was in high school, but had all but disappeared from public life when he suffered an emotional breakdown after his parents died tragically in a fire. The friendship between Myra and Eric remains innocent as Eric is dating Tiffany, an ambitious woman who wants to parlay Eric’s past fame into her own. She isn’t satisfied with one man, however, and Myra catches her in more than one act of indiscretion. As much as she cares for Eric, Myra doesn’t feel that it’s her business to tell him about what she had seen.
Soon after Myra arrives to the city, she is called back to her hometown. Her father broke his leg and requires her help with the chores. Eric takes Myra up on the offer to show him around her family farm. They manage to steal moments that only make them fall for each other more. They chop hay together on the tractor, round up the cows from the pasture and milk them, catch fireflies in the yard and swim in the pond with the rope swing. While Eric and Myra have a good time in the country, Tiffany could not return to the city fast enough. She not only was bored out of her mind, but she also was attacked by a playful goat.
Back in the city, Eric is inspired. He picks up his guitar again and write songs. Things go so well that he records and releases a single. Soon, he is back at the top of his game. His song is played on the radio constantly. His fame builds back up to superstardom. Upon Myra’s return to the city, she finally finds a job. She waitresses in a little diner. She is ecstatic that she has finally found something that she can do well and use it to make money. For a while, Myra is happy. She has money coming in and her friend Eric is finding new success in his music career. Soon however, Myra finds that living in the city is not all it’s cracked up to be. She is nearly robbed when she decided to take a shortcut down a back street and after a fire breaks out in her hotel, she loses her already meager possessions. She’s not spending nearly as much time with Eric as she used to and Tiffany keeps telling her that she is too plain and ugly to be seen with Eric by the media and it would hurt his career. Myra ends up getting fired because her manager wants to hire her niece instead and must make the difficult decision to go back to live with her parents.
Back home, Myra looks for employment, but the only place in town hiring is at her ex-husband’s hardware store. Dennis is still with his mistress, but expresses interest in getting back together with her. Myra also is under pressure from her mother to get together with Burt, a farmer who lives the next road over. Myra doesn’t have interest in either of these men.
Meanwhile, in the city Eric finds out about Tiffany and finally begins to understand her true character. Through the breakup, he can only think of Myra’s warm smile, kindness and compassion. Eric decides to go to Myra and find out if she feels the same.
