After being raised by a single mother who supported them as a nurse, and commuting to school, new graduate Annie has no idea what to do with her degree in anthropology and feels lost. Reinforced by a failed interview in Manhattan, she stops in Central Park to ponder her options and soon saves a little boy from a hit and run accident. This attracts the attention of a passing mothers seeking nannies and she's soon employed by a wealthy upper east side couple. Mr X is occupied with his business, Mrs X is occupied with keeping her mind off his philandering, and neither one spends time with their four year old son, Grayer. Annie detests them but grows to love the lonely Grayer and is soon lying to her mother about how she's supporting herself, while she indulges her love of anthropology with an intimate study of this Manhattan subculture.
