Rebecca (Lindsay Sloane) is a veterinary assistant who loves dogs but does not have good luck with men. Steven (Alexander Chaplin), meanwhile, is both a dog lover and an aspiring author. Unfortunately, his current novel is not going anywhere. One day, the two have a chance encounter, during which Rebecca makes the assumption that Steven is gay. Although Steven has opportunities to correct this, he decides to use the mistake to get closer to her, and possibly glean material for his book.
