In the wee hours, two days before Christmas, graphic artist Allie Benson—a young African-American living contently with her boyfriend—is awakened by a distress call from her boss. Knowing she possesses a pilot’s license, he asks her to fly to Maine to pick up Roy Colby, a stranded potential client, and bring him back to Manhattan. She imagines Colby, the owner of a chain of stores, to be a middle-aged guy with a paunch, so she isn’t prepared for the handsome, blond-haired man waiting at the airport. When the plane develops engine trouble, she’s forced to make an emergency landing. Rescue is prevented by a snowstorm, and they take shelter in an abandoned shack. After spending a stolen night of bliss, the two are rescued. But will they ever be able to return to their lovers at home and forget one another?
