Can two people from completely different worlds find a way to make marriage work? Alex Whitman and Isabel Fuentes think so, but their hopes are tested when they try the experiment. Alex is an architect from New York, a wealthy Anglo with a yuppie sensibility. In Las Vegas to check on building plans for a nightclub, he meets Mexican-American Isabel, a photographer whose beauty and relaxed approach to life he finds highly attractive. The two of them spend a night together. A few months later, Isabel lets Alex know she’s pregnant, and the two them decide to get married. Their choice surprises both of their very different families who make their decision even more challenging with their attitudes.
