Marisa Ventura is a hard-working, single mother, born and bred in the boroughs of New York City. She works, tirelessly, as a maid in a first-class Manhattan hotel. By a twist of fate and mistaken identity, Marisa meets the confident Christopher Marshall, a handsome heir to a political dynasty, who, by chance, believes that she is a guest at the luxury hotel. Fate steps in and throws the unlikely pair together for one night. When Marisa's true identity is revealed, the two find that they are worlds apart--nonetheless, the distance separating them is just a train ride between Manhattan and the Bronx.
