Valentin, a recent college grad, takes a job overseas in order to pursue Maria, his true love. When things don't work out, the distraught Valentin throws himself into his career-and into a whirlwind relationship with a gorgeous woman named Irina. The idyllic situation quickly turns sour as Valentin becomes the victim of intra office politics and is unceremoniously fired. To make things worse, Irina abruptly breaks off the relationship.
Heartbroken once again and thousands of miles from home, Valentin must decide whether to return home and start over or stay and fight for his chance at happiness.
