Gina Renzi dreams of becoming a doctor. She loves her volunteer work as a candy striper at the hospital. And when she starts dating soccer star Dave Bender, her life seems perfect -- at last she has it all! But Dave refuses to listen when Gina talks about the hospital because his sister is dying of a disease no one can cure. He doesn't want anything to do with doctors -- or with girls who want to be doctors. As Dave's distrust and anger grows, Gina wonders if she can hold on to her dreams -- without losing Dave's love.
