She's rejected the prescribed middle class life in which she had been raised, and she's certain that there is no convenient marriage and comfortable suburban lifestyle in her future. John Carlson is the president of his own high-end architectural firm who is in the middle of midlife crisis. Married and living in Connecticut, he convinces his wife, Sharon, to move to Manhattan in order to re-ignite his professional life. Though she complies with her husband, Sharon is very unhappy about uprooting her comfortable suburban home. But her life takes on a new meaning when she develops a friendship with a rebelling teenager. What will happen when these three lives intersect?
