High school English teacher Abigail Brennan-DiBlasi can’t imagine life without her husband Joe. After 25 years of marriage and four children they can finish each other’s sentences, but their once vibrant and loving union is disintegrating. It seems fear has replaced love as the emotion that keeps them together and their bitter verbal battles make Abby long for something else. As she watches the sunset through the maple tree in her backyard, she feels the sunset is beckoning her to another life and she fantasizes about a man who is Joe’s opposite.

Her husband roared one last time; then, finally, silence fell.
