Policeman Barry Grimes (Robson Green) is less than thrilled to be assigned as bodyguard to a young prince (Rupert Penrys-Jones) who is studying at Cambridge University. He begins to warm to his young charge, however, and agrees to help him woo American student Grace (Tara Fitzgerald). Complications arise when Barry himself falls for Grace, who has been charmed by Barry’s literary efforts on the prince’s behalf.
