Somewhere along the way, Geordie and Jane have lost each other. Life has swallowed them up in the daily grind of screaming kids, unpaid bills and a teenage son who hates the world. Whatever happened to them? They were so happy, full of plans for the future and looking forward to having a family together. Now it is an endless cycle of bad luck and struggling to make ends meet. Jane is trying to cope, Geordie can't cope, but maybe just somewhere - in a little moment in this day - Geordie and Jane are about to find each other again.
