A woman in her 30s begins to question the routine and predictability of her days. In everybody's eyes, she has a perfect life: happy marriage, children and a career. Yet what she feels is an enormous apathy. All that changes when she encounters a successful politician who, years earlier, had been her high school boyfriend. As she rediscovers the passion missing from her life, she will face a life-altering choice.
