Becky Foster is a relatively happy, middle-aged wife and mother (of a 26-year-old still living at home), overworked at an automobile dealership. One night when she’s in the salesroom late, a befuddled, widowed millionaire walks in, looking to buy some cars as gifts for his employees. When Becky recommends an all-wheel-drive sports coupe, remarking that her husband always wanted one, billboard magnate Walter Flood assumes that she too is bereaved. Somehow, she fails to adequately correct him. And before you know it, she is living parallel lives separated by a three-hour drive and a wide socioeconomic chasm. Becky must choose what route to take.
