evicted from yet another home, lifelong schemer and freeloader Myrtle, cousin to wealthy and socially naive entrepreneur Sam
Sharpe, pretends to be sick and moves in with him and his much younger and very attractive wife, Jessie, a gold-digger who
believed that Sam could give her the comfortable life she always wanted. But when Myrtle’s schemes backfire and end
up hurting her, Sam is truly hurt because he never believed that Myrtle would aim her conniving ways at him. Jessie starts
to realize how kind her husband really is, and her feelings for him start to grow. But, one day she meets a handsome, mysterious
stranger in town. As he starts to fill her thoughts, Jessie wonders whether this man will be able to do to her marriage what
Cousin Myrtle could not.
