According to the official synopsis, a tabloid journalist and a palace landscaper create a bond amid a ruse. However, when the truth comes to light, the couple’s bond is jeopardized.
London-based tabloid journalist Charlotte (D’Orsay) receives an assignment which sends her to Nordin, Scandinavia to secure an interview with the extremely reclusive Lars Ludwig Von Taylor, the Count of Sorhagen. Meanwhile, in an “in” into the palace, Charlotte comes upon palace landscaper Adam (Kemp), whom she mistakes for the Count and requests an interview.
