On her deathbed, Rory Gallant's mother begs him to be a good man, and to not behave like his caddish father, Doug. Now all grown up, Rory is a good man, but loves seems to elude him. Maybe he does need to be a bit more of a cad after all? Deciding to follow the cad dating rules, and with a bit of help from lothario Doug, Rory decides to become the complete opposite of the man he really is... Rory's best friend and neighbour Sarah doesn't understand why Rory thinks he needs to change to find love - he's perfect just the way he is. She's determined to show him that he doesn't need to change in order to find love. That maybe it's standing right under his nose... maybe even right next door?
