Alice and Ben. A couple like any other, bound together by love, marriage, children, work, familiarity, a shared sense of purpose.

Arguing over the usual things too – in-laws, who works longer hours, which of them is a soft touch with the children, who hates change and who craves it.

But when Ben takes a step into the unknown, and brings devastation on the family, it forces them to look at everything in a whole new way. He makes a decision that could destroy everything and everyone he loves.

Alice and Ben are now on different paths: she needs to put their shared life behind her; he needs to remember it to survive. So what will happen if they get a second chance? Can they – should they – go back to the way they were?
