A marriage of convenience turns into something much deeper after an Ethiopian man agrees to marry a woman so that she can obtain her green card and gain U.S. citizenship. Solomon has always dreamed of opening an authentic Ethiopian coffee house, so when Hannah's parents agree to pay him $20,000 to marry their daughter he jumps at the opportunity. Over the course of the following year, Solomon and Hannah carefully navigate the naturalization process while experiencing love, jealousy, culture clash, and preparing to follow their dreams. Hannah longs to become a famous fashion designer, though after a meeting with fashion agent Morris Benton she begins to fear that she will have to sacrifice her lifelong values in order to find success. When the unspoken desires of these two dreamers collide, the resulting impact could make or break their fledgling relationship.
