An affluent Jewish man living in the suburbs with his loyal fiancée experiences a life altering crisis of conscience following the death of his father in director Sallie Aprahamian's introspective drama. Jake (Dan Fredenburgh) is a successful property developer engaged to me married to the beautiful Zoe (Olivia Williams). To this point in his life Jake hasn't really questioned the decisions that he's made or the relationships he's maintained, though when his father dies unexpectedly, he is gradually drawn back to the inner-city neighborhood of his youth. As a young boy, Jake's father had owned a tailoring business in the city. Now as Jake goes back to explore his old haunts, he strikes up a casual friendship with local waitress B (Doraly Rosa) that quickly threatens to develop into something much more serious. But B, too, is involved in an outside relationship, hers with ailing ex-boxer Chester (Paul Bettany), who suffered a stroke in a recent fight and now relies on her for care and support. As Jake and B both wrestle with the anxiety and guilt brought upon by their mutual attraction, they are forced to weigh their trepidation over causing pain to their respective significant others against the prospect that their burgeoning relationship may be their only chance for ever finding true happiness.~ Jason Buchanan, All Movie Guide
