Love is really quite simple. When you love someone,
you want as much for them as you want for yourself.

Fearing she may lose her children should they end up in court, Kasey searches for clues of his infidelity and the reasons their 25-year marriage unraveled. Examining the impact of a secret he insisted they keep from his family causes her to recognize that her life has been overtaken by her husband’s desperate need for control. Unable to tolerate his veiled threats and erratic outbursts, she makes plans to leave. Before she can take action, a medical crisis forces her to make challenging decisions that lead her on a journey quite different from the one she anticipated.
