While attending the prestigious Hotel Training Academy, the attractive and dominant director of the institute – James Steele – catches her eye.

But Angie has a rival – the luscious Italian Isabella who is prepared to do anything to please him. A battle of wills ensues between Angie and Isabella. Who will be the victor?
