Poppy Wakefield lives a charmed existence, playing domestic goddess for her husband Stephen and working as a freelance magazine journalist from her beautiful home in England. Her seemingly perfect, if predictable, life is shattered when she discovers that Stephen’s recent birdwatching hobby is a cover for an affair. Still in shock from the betrayal, she finds some much needed respite in an entertainment talk show segment highlighting George Clooney’s charitable work. To Poppy, George is everything her husband isn’t; suave, sophisticated, funny and charming, someone who really cares about making a difference in the world and the ideal match for her! When she receives a well timed invitation to visit her close friend Justin in Los Angeles she decides to give fate a helping hand and flies to LA on a quest to cross paths with George – where she has no doubt they will fall in love at first sight…until a surprise announcement brings Poppy and her romantic fantasy crashing back down to earth. Through a funny series of near misses, unrelated adventures and colorful characters, Poppy navigates through her new life in LA. Until one day fate throws her a very unexpected curveball…
