Kate (Meg Ryan) and fiance Charlie (Timothy Hutton) seem set for a predictable future life together in Canada - until Charlie attends a seminar in Paris and falls for heavenly Juliette. Juliette is beautiful and French. Kate decides to follow and win back what is hers in a straight fight between good old American know-how and the ageless savoir-faire of Europe. That's when Luc appears on the scene. Luc is handsome and French, and more than happy to instruct Kate in some of the finer points of seduction.
