Plot Synopsis

As their life stories intertwine in curious ways, they discover that several of them share the same birthday -- and so much more than anyone would expect.

Marriage and raising three 8-year-old children is beginning to take its toll on Rebecca and Jack as they start to feel distant from one another.
