A drunken New Year's Eve hook-up becomes far more complicated for Jessie and Tom when she discovers her one night stand is actually an international film star. What she thought would become an amusing anecdote soon turns into something more, as the couple realise they can't keep away from each other.

Jessie's world couldn't be further from Tom's, working multiple jobs to afford her overpriced flat she shares with her best friend, Kate. Despite her doubts and his fame, their connection brings them together to try to navigate a possible relationship under less than ordinary circumstances.
