Amir spends his days delivering bad news to unsuspecting lovers across Los Angeles. While he claims that he is "just the messenger," the job has made him hard-hearted, making him the last bachelor in his social circle. This becomes more apparent when his friend tells Amir that he can no longer be the Best Man at the wedding because he doesn't have "better relationship karma." Disgruntled and alone, he is reunited with Zara, his charming and beautiful cousin from Britain. Zara hitches a ride with Amir back to LA, only planning to stay a few days. An undercurrent of sexual tension develops between them as the charade comes dangerously close to going too far.
