Edwin Green's ex-girlfriend is famous. Like cover-of-every-tabloid-in-the-grocery-store-line famous. She dumped Edwin one year ago, and in hopes of winning her back he’s spent the last twelve months trying to become famous himself ... it hasn't gone well.
But when a history class assignment pairs Edwin with Parker Haddaway, the terrifying new girl at school, she introduces him to Garland Lenox, a nursing-home-bound World War II veteran who will change Edwin’s life forever.
The three escape to France, in search of Garland's long-lost love, and as word of their adventure spreads they become media darlings. But as things unravel, they also become the focus of French authorities. It’s a race against time. Who will find love, and who will only find more heartache?
