Jen and Mike Lucas are happily married, or so Jen thinks. Recently Mike has been short tempered and cranky, but Jen thinks that has to do with how much he dislikes his job with a finance company. Jen, on the other hand, loves her job as a teacher. She’s just started at a new school. She also makes more money than Mike, which he mentions often. As they drift apart, Mike spends more and more time at the gym, while Jen tries to save their marriage.

When one of Jen’s students, young Charlie Mayhew, suffers a terrible fall from his bike and cracks his skull, Jen lends support to his father, Christopher, a single father who lost Charlie’s mother to cancer.

As the summer draws to a close, Jen has some decisions to make, and what she decides will shock everyone, even Jen herself.
