Feeling trapped in a lifeless marriage, Holly Lewis runs away from home one morning. She’ll come back of course, to her humdrum husband and two children, but after running into Seth, the divorced artist down the street, Holly begins to question everything. It doesn’t help matters that one of her friends seems to have an ideal marriage and another friend is starting over. When Seth helps her train for a half marathon, Holly wonders if she’s missing out on her soul mate. Should the promise she made to her husband, who now seems like a stranger, trump her own happiness? Can a dead marriage be resurrected?
