Romance blooms between two complete opposites forced to share a New York apartment in this contemporary remake of Neil Simon's classic comedy The Goodbye Girl. Elliot Garfield arrives in Manhattan to take the acting role of his life only to find that ex-chorus girl Paula McFadden and her young daughter, Lucy, occupy the apartment he's renting. Paula's ex-boyfriend has abandoned her, sublet their apartment--to Garfield--and left Lucy and Paula without a job or a place to live. Although Garfield has legal claim to the apartment, he can't throw the mother and daughter out. So, despite Garfield's eccentric ways, the three form a home and soon discover that love means never saying good-bye.
