The story revolves around an American woman named Anabel who lives in a small town in the US. She is a struggling artist and in her late 30s. She has been married twice but is always unlucky in love. Anabel feels frustrated and unfulfilled with her life and decides to take a break and go on a trip to Italy.

While in Italy, Anabel meets an attractive and charming Italian man named Paolo. They hit it off and start spending a lot of time together. Paolo is everything that Anabel has ever wanted in a man, and they soon fall in love.

However, things take an unexpected turn when Paolo asks Anabel to marry him. Anabel is hesitant at first, but Paolo assures her that they are perfect for each other and that he can offer her the stable and loving relationship she has always wanted. Anabel eventually agrees and they get married in Italy.

But when Anabel returns to the US with her new husband, she soon discovers that Paolo has a lot of secrets. He doesn't speak English, and he's not Italian at all, but Croatian. Paolo's real name is Mario, and he has been paid to marry Anabel so that he can get a green card and stay in the US.
