Paige Morgan (Julia Stiles), a pre-med student from Wisconsin, is on the fast track to creating the life she's always wanted. Eddie (Luke Mably), the Crown Prince of Denmark, is trying to escape a life he never chose. She grew up on a dairy farm in rural Manitowoc and drives her dad's Ford pickup. He grew up in Copenhagen's royal palace and takes the Queen Mum's limo out for a spin when bored with his Lamborghini.

And what if they met?

Instant chemistry? Well not exactly. Edvard, as his royal family knows him, has enrolled at the University of Wisconsin to take a detour from his destiny as the future king and "find himself." Focused on her future, Paige knows exactly what she wants: to graduate and go on to study medicine at Johns Hopkins. Does the undeniable love they've found mean he'll step away from his place in the Danish monarchy? Or she'll lose sight of her dream to become a doctor?
