Sometimes the recipe for a good marriage needs a few new ingredients. Maxine and Kenny love each other very much, and nothing can tear them apart. So why do they feel so distanced from one another? Maybe it's because Maxine wants to spread her wings and her words by taking a writing class. But Kenny doesn't want to do anything to upset the status quo -- specifically Maxine's status as a wife and mother. Their arguments may be many, but there is one thing that Maxine and Kenny can agree on: they disagree. Encouraged by her sisters Teri and Bird, Maxine takes the class and finds herself developing a deep connection with her writing instructor. He is a successful, sensuous man who seems to under-stand the secrets of her soul. As he encourages and nurtures her talents, Maxine gets a sense of fulfillment that her husband no longer provides. Stubborness blinds Kenny, and no advice from Teri, Bird, or even Lem can make him see the path on which his marriage is traveling. With their lives seemingly taking different directions, how are these two sensible, sensitive adults supposed to stay together -- faithfully, and forever?
