When Isobel’s husband Jack announces his intent to pursue a job that would require him to live in Bangkok for five years to work against human trafficking, he assumes Isobel will follow and leave her life and career behind. Isobel is not prepared to blindly obey; Jack is not prepared to forfeit this chance of a life time.

Hurt and misunderstood by one another, struggling with the desire to care and the inability to do so, husband and wife attempt to reconcile their lives and love in Paris and in their Winnipeg dream home.
