After Sam phones in on a live radio talk show to express his feelings of a broken heart and loneliness, he soon becomes the most desirable single man in America and the perfect compelling news story for reporter Annie, who lives on the east coast. Will the two fall in love at the top of the Empire State Building or are they just two ships passing in the night?
