Months after her successful cooking show, Alexandra the Grate ends, Alex downsizes and takes a new position in the continuing education department of a local community college. Though new beginnings are bittersweet, she begins to settle into this slower, quieter stage of her life, not quite happy, but happy enough. That is until she lands in the arms of a silver-tongued pianist.
Throwing caution to the wind, Alexandra leaves behind everything she’s ever known in Minnesota in favor of the glamour of the French Quarter and the New Orleans jazz scene. There, she rediscovers what it means to be courageous and what amazing things can come from a little bit of improvisation.
