Synopsis
Royce and Damien are housemates and exact opposites. Already dealing with their own problems, their lives become even more complicated when their friend and roommate Will takes a job in New York and replaces his spot with an unexpected guest, who only brings more confusion to the house. Without their knowledge or approval, Will has set them up with a young and beautiful aspiring actress/model from New York named Toni. Initially reluctant to take in a female cohabitant, Royce and Damien are eventually won over by Toni's charm and beauty. Royce, the accountant, is an educated, conservative, and politically correct man, in a once promising relationship that has gone south due to his girlfriend's newly found pseudo faith in religion. Damien, the real estate agent, is an educated, extremely opinionated, playboy, who lives life to the fullest. He battles his own inner demons, which primarily include his love for having many beautiful women in his life, his fear of commitment, and lack of planning for the future. Toni, the newcomer to the crew, initially has a tough time getting acclimated to her new environment and adjusting to living in Southern California. The whole household is affected by the arrival of the sassy, bourgeois, and overbearing Nicole, who is Toni's friend. Unbeknownst to all parties involved, they all share a common bond that eventually ends up linking them together in the end, love for one another. It is this secret entity that helps them overcome their obstacles and brings their separate, social lives and personal pursuits, full circle in the end.
