What could be both companies' saving grace is that their respective presidents, Richard Wright and Evelyn Foster, are in love with each other, with their personal merger in terms of a marriage resulting in a planned business merger of the two companies. What neither anticipates is what ends up being a sticking point in the business merger which could be a deal breaker for their marriage happening: he is not willing to give up the square design and she is not willing to give up the circular design, each which is synonymous with their particular brand for generations, for the merged companies' combination waffle iron. What happens in both their professional and personal mergers is affected by he unexpectedly assuming "ownership" of a Hindu magi, Prince Chris Manusha, who has special powers.
