Can you control the changes in your life -- or do they control you?
Jackie has always been scared of change. She's built a quiet, comfortable life for herself, free from drama and chaos. But when she faces a big change at work, her life is thrown into upheaval, and she can't help but wonder what would happen if she seized the opportunity to change more than just her job.
Meanwhile, Paul has a big decision to make. Faced with the threat of divorce and the possibility of a career change, he has to decide what it is he really wants. But that's much easier said than done, especially when emotions keep him chained to the past.
Change is never easy. But when it happens, is it better to throw caution to the wind or play it safe by living in denial?

"We all undergo reinvention throughout our lives, from childhood to adulthood, from individuals to spouses and parents, and each time we change careers. Now more than ever it seems people are trying to find fulfillment, to grasp the parts of their lives that bring meaning and joy. As I personally try to figure out my course in life, I am drawn ever more to creating characters who are able to overcome obstacles as they reinvent who they are and who they want to be." Vanessa currently resides in East Hartford, Connecticut with her husband Kevin, their son Avery, and their crazy-but-cute bulldog Oliver.
