At forty-five, Ben Powers finds his twenty-year marriage on the rocks and his once brilliant career as a television writer washed up. His son is a stranger to him and his daughter is too wrapped up in her own life to give him much thought. Alone and financially crippled, he seeks solace in twenty-eight-year-old Penny Savodi, whose recent disappointment in love has left her emotionally drained and pathetically vulnerable.
