When life `s unexpected changes pull two people in different directions, sweeping them into new lives and changed worlds.
For fourteen years, Steve and Meredith Whitman have sustained a marriage of passion and friendship, despite the demands of two all . consuming careers. Meredith is a top investment banker, Steve a gifted physician . the only thing missing in their life is children. Steve longs for them. But Meredith keeps putting off motherhood, and now she has been offered an extraordinary job opportunity in San Francisco, three thousand miles away. Steve urges her to accept, saying that he` s more than happy to uproot himself and will join her as soon as he can find a new job himself. Perhaps in California, he hopes, they can begin a family at last.
