A man named Brian Flanagan is quite a self-confident and ambitious person. He was born into a poor family, so he always dreamed of becoming a successful and influential man.

One day he met a girl named Jordan. She is smart, beautiful and confident. The stranger captured him with his soul, making his heart beat faster. Gradually, the guy begins to develop feelings that develop into something more than just sympathy. Brian begins to understand that love is real happiness.
