Sometimes ordinary life can be a remarkable
Elizabeth and Jackson Shore married young, raised two
daughters, and weathered the storm of youth as they built a
family together. From a distance, their life together
looks perfect. They are the envy of their friends. But
when their girls leave home, Jack and Elizabeth find
themselves left in a relationship that has gone stale. In
their suddenly empty and quiet house, they each begin to
wonder about the roads not taken.
Then Jack is offered the job of his dreamsacross the
country from the home that makes Elizabeth feel secure and
protected. She makes the difficult decision to put her own
needs aside and follow him. It is what she's always done.
Once there, she feels lost, as empty and cold as her
husband's new corporate apartment. She misses her
beautiful cottage by the sea on the Oregon Coast. Now,
when she stands at her bedroom windowalone, because
her husband is workingall she sees is the building
across the street. Instead of the beach music she loves,
she hears honking horns and screeching tires.
A family tragedy once again turns Elizabeth's world upside
down. In the aftermath, she finds herself questioning her
lifeher choices, her marriage, her long-forgotten
dreams. In a daring move that will shock her husband, her
friends and her children, she chooses to let go of the
woman she has become and to reach out for the woman she
wants to be.
