Doug comes to Jill with questions about the original script. Hollywood gossip had always said that Jill's father had rescued the script, but Doug thinks that Jill's father took an artistic masterpiece and made it into a commercial success.
Jill and Doug realize they are attracted to each other and a romance develops as they work together to try to discover the truth about the script. Jill starts to look for the original script but despite her Hollywood contacts, finds nothing. Together, Jill and Doug return to the Shenandoah Valley where their families live and where the film was shot. From some of the actors who were in the movie and who still live in Virginia, they learn there was another version of the movie. As they continue to try to solve the mystery of the other version, Jill and Doug also explore their love for each other. But before they can commit to a relationship, Jill has to struggle with her feelings that she is not loveable, Doug must decide if he wants to continue to coach college basketball, and both must face their families in Virginia.
