Independent minded, CEO/socialite Savanna Cavendish, 32, is annoyed when she has to accept help from Pedro Rivera, 28, a haughty highway construction worker. Rivera repairs her car, then refuses to accept money for the work. She insists, Pedro, through an interpreter, suggests she can pay him by teaching him the speech and manners to make him a credible American businessman. Grudgingly, Savanna finally agrees to attempt to change Pedro, the emigrant, into Peter, the executive. As Peter changes, the chemistry between them quickens, and Savanna struggles to view Rivera as a project rather than a man. When women friends admire him, she feels unfamiliar twinges of jealousy. Eventually, Rivera prevails and Savanna succumbs to her regard for a man custom designed for her, by her.
