How much should one be willing to fight for their marriage? What happens when someone else enters the picture and helps you see just what you are missing from life? How far should one go to protect another?

Life is routine and structured, as he focuses his time on his businesses and caring for his family. During a service call, Mason meets Brie.

Brie is the loving, devoted wife of James Fleming, a successful lawyer turned DA. On the outside, this marriage seems to have it all, but late nights, long hours at work, and lack of communication begin create a divide in the marriage.
