AMIR, 29, is a heartbreaker. Literally. As a â€œrelationship termination specialist,â€ providing â€œdumping servicesâ€ for disgruntled daters, Amir spends his days delivering bad news to unsuspecting lovers across Los Angeles and retrieving his clientsâ€™ belongings (underwear, CDs, photos, etc). Though Amir claims he is â€œjust the messenger,â€ the job has made him hard-hearted and, as a result, he is the last bachelor in his group of friends. This becomes crystal clear on his 30th birthday, when his friend TUCKER tells Amir he can no longer be the Best Man at his upcoming
wedding because he and his bride TINA want someone with â€œbetter relationship karma.â€ When Amir returns to his familyâ€™s Bay Area home for Thanksgiving, he is reunited with ZARA, his charming and beautiful cousin from Britain who he has not seen in twenty years. The two cousins do not get along right away as Zara is still upset that Amir kissed her during a â€œplay weddingâ€ when they were children. With the prompting of
Amirâ€™s parents, Zara hitches a ride with Amir back to LA, only planning to stay a few days. Along the way, Amir tells her about his friends and their â€œbachelorismâ€ and she is sympathetic. When she meets them, she surprises everyone, including Amir, by introducing herself as his â€œgirlfriend.â€ Before long the scam is in full swing as Amir and Zara go on â€œcouples outingsâ€ with his friends. She even shows him how to be more sympathetic to his â€œbreakup victims.â€ Over time, Amir starts to soften from Zaraâ€™s influence and perhaps even begins to developâ€¦feelings?
An undercurrent of sexual tension develops between them as the charade comes dangerously close to going too far. Will his friends find out the truth? Will Amir fall for his own cousin?! Or will he become one of his own â€œvictims?â€
