Allison Robbins is on the verge of breakdown. She is a semi-successful, intelligent businesswoman in advertising. But she is constantly under stress, and has begun having panic attacks. The doctor recommends she find a hobby, something fun that will ease her mind.
Sean Gilroy is quite the opposite. He has worked in the same surf shop for over a decade, and lives for the waves. Relaxed, somewhat carefree, and undeniably kind.
When Allison picks surfing as her new hobby, she enlists Sean as her teacher. Sexual tension develops quickly, but turns into a potential relationship. Allison must decide whether her career is really worth all this stress, and Sean must learn that things in life don't come easily...a classic "opposites-attract" story.
