Hannah Higgins (Julia Stiles) is a smart, driven consultant. To advance the cause of education reform, she runs for Congress - but loses, big-time. Voters just can't warm to her. For the next election she recruits a beer vendor named Elliot Doolittle (David Walton). Elliot's the opposite of prim-and-proper Hannah. He speaks with a thick South Boston accent, he has an unruly beard, he dresses super-informally. Hannah takes Elliot on as a project. She tries to get him to speak like a gentleman, dress like a gentleman, comport himself like a gentleman. As Elliot becomes more presentable and Hannah becomes a little less high-falutin', could this turn in to a love match made in election Heaven?
