Ever since he was a little boy, Maximo has been interested in living the high life, but certainly not in working for it. He decides to marry a rich older woman, in the hopes that she'll die soon and leave him her enormous house and her money. But after 25 years, she's still alive and kicking - that is, kicking him out. She dumps him for a younger man, forcing him to abandon his life of luxury and move in with his sister Sara, who happens to be actually making something of her life. She gets increasingly frustrated by Maximo's attitude, but her young son Hugo takes an unlikely shine to his homeless uncle. Thus, Maximo decides to try and bag himself another grandmother by helping Hugo get closer to his rich classmate, whose grandma Celeste is a widow with billions in the bank. However, as time goes on, he starts to realise there's more to life than riches, and that love is far more valuable than he could ever have realised.

Richard Haig is a remarkably intelligent, charming, ageing poetry professor, whose life away from the classroom at Cambridge is one of constant hedonism and an unquenchable lust for women. He thinks nothing of sleeping with his attractive grad student Kate and even shamelessly makes a move on her hardlined older sister Olivia, much to her displeasure. Richard is forced to confront the consequences of his over-indulgent behaviour when Kate announces she's pregnant with his child. While fatherhood has never appealed to him much, he is ready to settle down, get married and experience family life, but when Kate falls in love with somebody else, it becomes clear that he's still got a long way to go before he can be considered a responsible person. Kate allows their son to stay with Richard, but only under the supervision of Olivia, who's about to teach Richard more about life and romance than he's ever taught about poetry.
