Synopsis

Greg and Steve compete for Faith’s affections. Steve is an explorer, and this turns Faith off: her parents are globe-trotting explorers who dragged her around the world as a child, and now she wants to settle down. Steve refuses to change his life, and challenges Faith to spend a week with Greg’s family to see if she likes his lifestyle better. Faith is bored by the Logan's stuffy society life. When her parents are reported missing in a plane crash, she realizes she loves Steve more. Her parents are safe. Steve says he and Faith can spend 6 months in town and 6 months exploring each year.
