Katherine is a young Australian girl from country Victoria. She stumbles on a talent for fashion design she didn't know she had, and uses it as her ticket out. Mike is a New York Lawyer, charming
but self indulgent, with links to the mob. He has a penchant for bordello's and his own brand of 'fun'. How do the two, from opposite ends of the world meet - and what will be the outcome?
