African American Leah (Sanaa Lathan) is quite successful in her job, and actually the relationship with David (Morris Chestnut) is doing quite well. But David does not feel ready to tie himself, and Leah fears she is getting too old for children. So the two go separate ways after two years together.
Some time later, Leah accidentally meets Carter (Michael Ealy), who protects her from being intrusive. Carter proves to be smart, polite and seems to be the man of Leah’s dreams in all aspects. Carter even spends the Thanksgiving weekend with Leah’s parents and knows how to charm them.
