Emily decided to experience homelessness as part of her doctoral thesis, but it turned out to be much harsher than she thought, and she's had about as much as she can take. She's standing by the roadside, holding a "will work for food" sign when a handsome man appears with a job offer. He needs her help covering for a thoughtless lie that he told. He needs her to pretend to be his wife. In just one day, she makes the jump from homeless woman to wife of a top businessman! But what will happen when it comes time for Emily to return to real life?
