Betty must be the most passionate and firey person on the planet and she turns our heros life upside down. When she finds he has written an unpublished manuscript she drags him from his small town existance accross the country on a mission to get it published.Never taking no for an answer Betty gets them into all sorts of trouble but also makes him feel incredibly alive.
