Once you go black, you never go gray.
Hannah Steele (Kali Hawk) is an attractive and intelligent college senior in Washington State who fills in for her sick roommate, Kateesha (Jenny Zigrino) in interviewing billionaire business magnate Christian Black (Marlon Wayans) for the college newspaper. Hannah gets flustered in the presence of this sophisticated, supremely-confident and mysterious man. Christian is quite taken with Hannah and take her is what he soon decides he wants to do. He shows up at the hardware store where she works, takes her out to coffee and even comes to “rescue” her when she drunk dials him from a bar. Despite how obvious it is to the main characters and to the audience that these two are very, very different and despite the title character’s own conflicted resistance these two cannot resist each other. But Christian very clearly states, “I don’t do romance.” That doesn’t stop Hannah from being drawn to this man.
