Description
Emma and David Evans seem to have a perfect life. He's a handsome and successful Welsh actor; she's a sometimes model, soon-to-be television news anchor, and full-time mother. But all is not well under the surface. She's impatient and choked by domesticity; he's narcissistic and unfaithful. Between the two of them is a privately combative marriage that has fed their want of drama. Then David relocates the family from their London home to provincial Hereford, where he's to star in two plays during the city's festival season. It's here, far removed from the highbrow stimulation of the city, that Emma's resentment of David-his long hours, his expectations, his ego-finally boils over. Bored and lonely, she falls into the arms of the theater's director, an indiscretion that triggers a series of surprises neither Emma nor David could have foreseen.
