Newlywed life meets all of Karen's expectations. Bob's career is soaring and Karen has a fulfilling job of her own-one that's put on hold when she becomes pregnant. But their caring partnership begins to slip away as Bob's single-minded pursuit of the next promotion blinds him to how overwhelmed Karen feels as a stay-at-home mom. When resentment and disenchantment build on both sides, Karen finds herself at a crossroads.
