They say opposites attract. That's certainly true for Mandy and Dave, who meet at a BYU ward opening social. In high school Mandy participated in all sports, including rodeo, and is now a P.E major. Dave's dream is to become an opera singer. One thing they have in common is a willingness to learn from each other. After they get married, they move to Philadelphia where Dave attends a college for aspiring opera singers, and Mandy becomes a student in the Pathway Program. The students in her Pathway group help her develop respect and love for ethnic diversity. In contrast, Dave begins to focus primarily on his professional goals and ignore those who have not had the opportunities he's had. At one point Mandy says she's worried that he's becoming a selfish jerk. Will Mandy and Dave be able to repair their relationship? Also, how can Dave's being held up at gun point help him realize an important truth?
