Susan (Kristy McNichol) is a professional musician. She plays the flute. It is revealed that she was injured when she was a child; ever since then she has had to wear a brace to help her walk. Also, she is in the middle of a relationship, but then it abruptly ends. Luckily, she is offered the chance of the lifetime to go on a concert tour in Europe. She happily accepts the offer.

Next, she arrives in Paris, and it is her goal not to be treated as special due to her disability. Her plan is to put her leg in a cast to make it look like any other injury. This allows her to visit the French Alps without the help that would be insisted upon by others if they knew she had a disability.

Susan is having a great time, when she unexpectedly begins to have feelings for a man she just met (Michael Ontkean). His name is Peter, and he is a local news photographer. As their romance grows, Susan has an important choice to make. She has to decide if she should open up about her disability. He will eventually find out, but the choice to tell him now will inevitably depend on if she believes they will be together in the long run.
