Vincent himself is not exactly a family man, and he is not sure how to cope with his girlfriend’s news. After work, he goes drinking at Stray Sheep, his favorite bar, and the next morning he wakes up with a gorgeous blonde bombshell beside him by the name of Catherine.
She becomes Vincent’s secret lover, but Catherine doesn’t know that Vincent already has a steady girlfriend. That means that he not only has to keep Catherine a secret to Katherine, but also the other way around. Eventually, Vincent has to choose which of the two is his true love.”
