Tess Harding, the paper's international columnist, makes his life miserable and they start taking swipes at each other in their columns. Soon their problems are overcome by the fact that they are falling in love ; Instant love: Pamela, an American film star, falls in love with coffee grower, Claudio, while in Brazil.
