The Right Girl
Jonathan Patrick Moore
Kimberly (Anna Hutchison) is living a spoiled life of luxury after inheriting her late father’s fortune. Her entitled attitude has agitated those around her for too long, including her mother Martha (Gail O’Grady). Kimberly’s life turns upside down when, to everyone’s amusement but hers, she receives news that her family’s money is gone, leaving her positively broke. To get back on her feet, Kimberly gets a job at a sporting goods store where she meets the owner and her new boss, Michael (Jonathan Patrick Moore). He invites her to his son’s baseball practice to teach Kimberly a thing or two about sports, introducing her to a world she never would have stepped foot in before. Michael’s kind and humble personality proves to be a good influence on Kimberly, who becomes more sincere with each passing day. The two fall head over heels for each other, inspiring Kimberly to do the most selfless thing she’s ever done – quit her job so that they may be a couple. Martha, proud to see her daughter becoming a more gracious woman, decides to give Kimberly the good news that her fortune has returned. A wealthy woman once again, Kimberly’s past has come back to challenge the life she’s learned to love.
