Sometimes relationships do more harm than good...
Three years after her divorce, Mary still finds herself in the shadow of her marriage. Timid, passive and thoroughly fed up with both, she decides it's time to take back her life.
Fellow teacher Kelly is fed up with the dead-end relationships that continue to leave her feeling hollow and dejected. Just as Mary is deciding it's time to make some changes, Kelly finds she's in the some position, and they turn to each other for support as they recreate who they really are.
As Mary and Kelly help each other through the struggles they encounter, they find that maybe it's not about changing who you are, but accepting who the changes in your life have made you.
