Mary Gooch was once young and slender and carefree. But with each passing year she's accumulated an excess of pounds and worries. On the eve of her 25th wedding anniversary, her handsome husband does not come home. Shocked out of her inertia, Mary boards a plane for the first time and begins a desperate search. With a surge of energy that she hasn't felt in years, Mary fights for her husband while she reflects upon a life half lived. Accustomed to hiding behind hunger and fear, she's forced to look up at her new surroundings, astonished by how the shift in perspective has let in the light.
