Don Tillman is getting married…just as soon as he picks a bride. He is a genetics professor, who came up with The Wife Project, which is the 16-page survey required of every woman he goes on a date with. He is sure the results will yield him the perfect woman to marry. Then he meets Rosie Jarman. He is drawn to her because of her mission to find her biological father, but disqualifies her as wife material. The two become friends, and Tillman has to decide whether or not he will ditch The Wife Project and pursue Rosie after all.
