On Cupid’s 25th birthday, he goes to New York on love business. Kick, a beautiful cardiac intern has just been dumped by yet another boyfriend. Her neighbour Marty, also struggling with heartbreak, meets her at Max and Rosie’s coffee shop.  A pretty red hired waitress has a crush on Marty but he only has eyes for Kick. The invisible Cupid arrives and is about to shoot someone with the arrow of love when he trips, knocks his head and shoots himself by mistake. It ignites the spell giving him amnesia and making him fall in love with the first mortal girl he sees - Kick.  Kick forces a reluctant Marty to take the now visible handsome stranger in. Outside, homeless Ben recognizes trouble when Marty’s scheming ex-girlfriend Julie shows up. Cupid discovers something troubling about romance but just as he is making headway with his beloved, his angry and worried parents show up.
