A successful, wealthy businessman, Wesley Deeds (Tyler Perry) has always done what’s expected of him, whether it’s assuming the helm of his father’s company, tolerating his delinquent brother’s misbehavior at the office or planning to marry his beautiful but restless fiancée, Natalie (Gabrielle Union “Daddy’s Little Girls”). But Wesley is jolted out of his predictable routine when he meets Lindsey (Thandie Newton “For Colored Girls”), a down-on-her-luck single mother who works as a cleaning person in his office building. Outspoken, impulsive and proud – and also recently evicted – Lindsey struggles to make ends meet for herself and her young daughter. But when Wesley offers to help her get back on her feet, his innocent good deed ignites an unexpected attraction – and suddenly Wesley finds himself caught between the life he thought he wanted and the powerful desires of his heart…
