A university professor’s sound theory on happiness is challenged by none other than an international soccer star.

Marta Aneva, charming, self-reliant, and bright, is a university professor who does not seem to be living the best of lives. She is still saddened by the breakup of her long marriage, and when faced with new setbacks in her work, she fears that a coveted promotion will elude her as well.

Marta takes a six-month leave from her university in Toronto and travels to Uruguay, where she seeks to experience a new way of living. She takes a position as a private English tutor to the two young children of a handsome and self-absorbed soccer star, Eduardo Rodriguez. The age gap between Marta and Eduardo is only the beginning of their differences. Regardless, Marta is disconcertingly attracted to him.

When she suspects that her feelings might be reciprocated, she must decide whether she is willing to sacrifice her independence and career for the promise of love. Ultimately, will her choice be the right one, one she will never regret?
