Alice and Mark are a married couple who are desperately struggling to come to terms with the catastrophic death of their child. While their friends tiptoe around them trying to offer their own advice and support, the couple find themselves unable to support each other as Mark cannot bear to be around his wife anymore. Meanwhile, Alice ends up at the office of grief counsellor Dr. Goodman who believes that fate has led them together for a reason and convinces her to look at her own life differently. They both go through feelings of devastation, intense rage and ultimately soul-destroying heartbreak that threatens not only the future of their relationship, but also their own lives. Will this once idyllic couple successfully find each other again? And, with that, find the strength to overcome the biggest tragedy of their lives?
