When a wife with two children discovers that her husband has been having an affair with another woman, she is so deeply wounded that she leaves home, will not talk to him again, and refuses to accept her mother's advice that she reconcile with the unfaithful spouse. Her world, as she had known it, has ended and now she drifts for awhile, trying to find a new place for herself, while still seeing her mother and children. Her quest begins to bear fruit when she meets a gay man at a therapy session and they become fast friends. She also finds a temporary home at the apartment of a happy-go-lucky roommate who has a "revolving door" stream of boyfriends. The woman slowly starts to edge out of her depression, gets a job, and starts having a relationship or two again. She goes so far as to spend an afternoon with her husband at a secluded rendezvous, and while seemingly torn between her old existence or a new, independent life, after that moment with her husband, she changes for good. ~ Eleanor Mannikka, Rovi
