Two fathers (Ken E. Brown & Tom Desjarlais) decide that they want their children to fall in love. The girl, Luisa (Brenna Gustafson), is a daydreamer with an active imagination. The boy, Matt (Michael Chavalas), is a romantic. The two fathers decide to instigate a mock feud amongst themselves in order to help the boy and girl fall in love. They figure that this feud will give them the excuse to say no to the relationship, which of course will simply encourage the children's love even more. The fathers go as far as to hire El Gallo (Michael Kruse) to stage a mock abduction of Luisa, in which Matt can become a hero and save her. After this act, Luisa and Matt fall deeply in love. Soon though, the children realize their parents staged the feud and their love fades away. Later, after both children experience a little life experience on their own and are hurt by it, they reunite once again with much less drama.
