In an effort to live a bolder and braver life, Everly Rowan begins following the "10 Easy Steps of the Morris Method of Creative Risk-taking". Over the next few weeks she visits a karaoke bar, a punk hairstylist, a bible-thumping church, and a skydiving drop zone. She breaks off her engagement to her fiance, clobbers a policeman with her shoe, and stands up to her sister in a showdown over fried squid. Just as she is beginning to question the wisdom of her actions, the author of the self-help book, Dr. Lana Morris, comes to town for a 'Dare to be Great' weekend retreat. The events that unfold there give Everly a new understanding of the nature of courage... and love.
