A down on her luck woman unwittingly becomes the object of a shady wager between two rival fashion photographers in this romantic comedy featuring Sopranos star Vincent Pastore. Dessi is something of an ugly duckling, and she's relegated herself to the reality that she'll never amount to anything but a fish cleaner in a low-rent restaurant. Then one day, Dessi catches the eye of local fashion photographer Rex. Rex is debating the true nature of photography with his rival Albert when he reluctantly accepts a bet to transform frumpy fish girl Dessi into a world-renowned super model. Though Rex ultimately succeeds in his mission, he falls for Dessi in the process and their romance hits the rocks after she catches wind of her newfound love's original intentions.
