Change can make you come undone...Abby's well-ordered life is falling apart. Her son's behaviour is worrying, her aging parents are deteriorating, and her husband loses his job. He finds a new position that compels them to move hundreds of miles away, where Abby is plagued by guilt and loneliness. When she discovers a group of women facing similar challenges, together they seek a way out of their unhappiness.
