Michael Murphy (Edward Burns), his lawyer and best friend from college, still carries a flame for former girlfriend Kate, even though their relationship ended badly. Since spotting Kate at a restaurant she has become all he can think about. She holds a grudge, but he will go to any length to win Kate back.
