A warm and laugh-out-loud funny story of one woman's brave quest to avoid true love. Best friends Hero and Sunday are holidaying in New York when Sunday persuades the normally conservative Hero to don a siren-red wig and the persona of Lola, a do-anything-anywhere-anytime trapeze artist. Disguised as Lola, Hero crosses paths - and a whole lot more - with gorgeous Oscar. Sparks fly, but Hero can't admit to Oscar that she's not who he thinks she is. Flash forward two years and Hero is back in Sydney, and in a relationship with arch conservative boyfriend Pelham. Life is comfortable, stable. Until she bumps into Oscar, that is. He's determined to pursue and win her back into his arms. He's also convinced that Hero is more like her alter ego Lola than she'd like to admit. No matter how hard Oscar tries, however, Hero insists that she's nothing like Lola, and she's not even slightly interested in him. Or so she keeps telling herself - and anyone else who'll listen. But does she protest too much?
