Bob runs his family’s successful, highly competitive sock company with his mother Dottie, sister Christina, and younger brother Douglas. When the stress of the job lands him in the Woodward Memorial Hospital, he is immediately drawn to Abishola, his kind, hardworking nurse. Now all Bob needs to do is convince her to give him a chance, which will take some doing since they couldn’t be more different. After coming to America from Nigeria to find a better life for herself and her son Dele, Abishola lives in a small apartment with her super-protective relatives, Auntie Olu and Uncle Tunde. Undaunted by Abishola’s lack of initial interest or the vast differences in their backgrounds, Bob is determined to win Abishola’s heart, in this comedic examination of immigrant life in America.
