The affair begins as a temporary diversion for both participants but, unexpectedly, they fall in love and begin to dream of a shared future, one that could make each of them whole by virtue of a seemingly perfect love with the power to heal all the failures and emotional wounds of their past lives. But for Karen, herself a product of divorced parents and a dysfunctional childhood, the fear of how a divorce would impact her children leads to a paralysis of will. Unable to move the relationship forward and out of the shadow of lies and deceptions, but lacking the courage to end the affair, the lovers suffer all the consequences of frustrated passion and the slow, inevitable corruption of their love.
