Ana is in a rut. 

For years, she had been focused on trying to carve out a niche for herself in a competitive, male-dominated, scientific world. On her 32nd birthday, she finally takes a step back and evaluates her life’s direction. With a little prodding from her friends, she decides that this is the year she’ll finally capture the heart of the research associate she’s secretly loved for ages.

So she makes a birthday wish—to finally fall in love with someone ('with' being the operative word).

But be careful what you wish for—Fate always answers—even if it isn't the exact answer we were hoping for. Find out how even the best-laid plans go awry when the paths of two very different people suddenly collide. 

Sometimes people search their whole lives for a happy-ever-after. The lucky people are those who realize what's in front of them and never let it go. ;-)
