Aspiring script writer Mike arrives in Los Angeles and is dazzled by the wealth and glamour which surrounds him. Realising that no-one knows who he is, Mike decides to re-invent himself as a rich playboy. In the fast-moving club scene of L.A. he spies Lola, a stunning Mexican dancer whose mysterious and sexy image belies her mundane life as a dental assistant. When Lola is house-sitting for her boss, she 'borrows' his Porsche for a drive around Beverley Hills and accidentally bumps into Mike. He now thinks that not only is she gorgeous but rich too. Both Lola and Mike believe they must keep pretending to be wealthy in order to woo each other.
