Sonya and Michael’s recent elopement in Vegas seemed like a dream come true for both of them...until they try living together in Sonya’s Manhattan studio apartment. They soon discover that they haven’t been entirely honest with each other or themselves, and their secrets come home to roost along with an intrusive mother, the co-op’s strict Board president, a harsh best friend, and a fabulous washer-dryer. Mayhem ensues as the couple is forced to re-evaluate their relationship and decide whether all really is fair in love and real estate.
