More than 30 years ago, Logan's mother was a teenager in Italy when she met a dashing young man by the name of Steve Logan at the local farmer's market. Struck by her graceful beauty, Steve waits by a flower seller for six days hoping that Maria will come by again.
Steve is almost ready to give up when Maria strolls into the market once again. This time they are unable to ignore their love, and they spend one incredible night together. However, Steve is from the Ivory Coast, and is unable to stay in
