Unlucky-in-love stockbroker Stella jets to Jamaica with her gal pal Delilah for some fun in the sun. There, the 40-year-old working woman has an island fling with Winston -- a handsome 20-something.

But, with their distance from each other, not to mention their disparity in age, does a real relationship stand a chance?
