He has been burned by relationships in the past and is hesitant to open up his heart to anyone. However, his luck changes when he meets a beautiful and vivacious woman named Marisa (Cerina Vincent).

Marisa is also single and tired of the dating scene. She is a passionate Italian-American who just wants to find the perfect man to settle down with. When she meets Jake, she becomes smitten with him and decides to give him a chance.

However, things take a turn for the worse when Marisa's ex-boyfriend, an Italian-American who is jealous of Jake, shows up and creates drama. He spreads rumors about Jake, which leads to Jake being shunned by Marisa's family and friends.

Feeling betrayed and hurt, Jake decides to leave town and return to his life. Marisa realizes her mistake and comes after him. She confesses her love to Jake and tells him that she doesn't care if he is Italian or not. She just wants to be with him.

The movie has a happy ending where Jake and Marisa reconcile and decide to give their relationship a chance. They embrace each other's cultures and traditions, and the movie ends with them enjoying a feast with their families.
