Ko Libby lovi moškega, ki ji je ukradel torbico, jo ustavi policist Dan Connor, ki skrbi za dva otroka v rejništvu. Libby predlaga, da bi delala zanj kot varuška, dokler otroka ne najdeta pravega doma ali ona nove službe. Vendar delo ni lahko. Naučiti se mora gospodinjiti in skrbeti za otroka. Libby in Dan se zbližata z otrokoma in med njimi se začne razvijati družinska vez.
After the failure of her start-up company, Libby Prescott (Jessy Schram) has packed up her life and moved to Los Angeles to start her new job. However, her first day of work abruptly turns into her last. Later that day, Libby finds herself chasing a man who stole her purse, but is quickly stopped by police officer, Dan Connor (Aaron Hill). Dan, who is currently looking after two foster kids, suggests that Libby work as his live-in nanny until either the kids find a permanent home or she finds a new job. Unwilling to turn down a job offer in her time of need, Libby accepts the position. But playing house isn't as easy as it sounds. Libby must learn to keep house and care for children for the first time in her life. Furthermore, the children's constant fear of abandonment forces Libby to really consider the responsibility she's taken on. As Libby and Dan grow closer to the kids, a familial bond begins to form, making it difficult to think about life without each other. Just when Dan decides to officially adopt the children, Libby is offered the job of her dreams. The only problem being that the opportunity would take Libby far away from her new family, the dream she never knew she had.
