As a little girl, Jane has no one. Her mother Vivienne Margaux, the powerful head of a major New York theater company, has no time for her. She does have one friend - Michael - but no one can see him except her.
But Michael can't stay with Jane forever, and on her eighth birthday, her imaginary friend must leave her. Michael promises Jane that she'll never remember him, that he was only there to ease her into this life.
When Jane is in her 30s, working for her mother's company, she is just as alone as she was as a child. Her boyfriend hardly knows she's there and is more interested in what Vivienne can do for his career. Her mother practically treats her as a slave in the office, despite the great success of Jane's first play, "Thank Heaven".
Then she finds Michael - handsome and just the same as she remembers him, only now he's not imaginary. For once in her life, Jane is happy - and has someone who loves her back. But not even Michael knows the reason behind why they've really been reunited.
