About Not My Beautiful Wife
When a major celebrity acting couple's marriage is on the brink and the man refuses to go into sex therapy to save it, they send his down-on-his luck brother and her assistant in to do the therapy for them. But when the brother and assistant fall in love during therapy, it's no longer clear where posing ends and reality begins.
