Description: The interwoven tale of the romantic lives of contemporary New Yorkers. Bella, an overworked Manhattan coffee shop waitress, isn't looking forward to her 35th birthday. Having been stuck in a relationship with a married man for far too long, Bella leaves him and takes a chance on novelist/taxi driver Bruno. Afraid to scare off yet another man with her dreams of marriage and family, she plays it cool and tells Bruno she hates children. Ironically, Bruno's ex-wife has just dumped two small children on him... Observing the regular coffee shop patrons, Bella realizes that she's not alone in the battle of romance. Two recently widowed people find that opposites can attract. A grumpy old man gets a magical shot of youth when he falls for a sexy exotic dancer. Despite the accompanying twists and turns, everyone holds out for the best. And finally Bella discovers that fairy tales can come true.
