Joy is the hilarious host of a TV cooking show, and she simply can't cook. Her expertise is entertaining her viewers by humour and her amazing prep cook makes sure that nobody knows the truth.
When Joy is caught in a surprise cook-off, she chose to fall off the stage instead of admitting the truth about her cooking skills. When a second surprise cook-off happens, she directed the attention of the audience elsewhere by planting a passionate kiss on her unsuspecting "assistant". Her fame as the unconventional cooking show host increased instantly, as the kiss made millions of hits on Youtube.
Joy is willing to do almost anything to keep the truth from coming out. She is faced with some really tough decisions, and struggles with what is really important in her life. Her journey is filled with pain and embarrassment, devotion to her family, and also a chance at laughter and romance. But everything is on the line ... and it all depends on whether she can be honest with herself and with others.
