THE STORY OF ZACHERY AND JOSEPHINE

LOGLINE: A nice-guy tax lawyer who is cripplingly shy around women falls in love with a hardened Korean prostitute whose quirky, wise mother sees a match.
 
OVERVIEW: ZACHERY RHYMER, 29, a brilliant but introverted lawyer whose social life consists of gourmet cooking and chess, falls in love with a street-smart Korean prostitute, JOSEPHINE HWANG, 22. He desperately wants to see her outside work, but she adamantly refuses. But a chance encounter when Zachery meets Josephine and her mother, RIN, 51, who takes a liking to him, changes their lives forever. Can Rin help two damaged people connect or are they broken beyond repair?
