A man has the perfect family...a beautiful wife and adorable daughter. However, there is an unseen problem.

Being deployed on a trip to California for a week, the wife faces the temptation of adultery by her tall, dark, and handsome coworker, whom approaches her often hoping for the chance to sleep with her. One night needing his assistance to get home from work due to car trouble, she invites him in for a moment. All of the sexual advances from the job is put to the test, as the wife falls short of using her self-control, which leads to a night of passion. Unbeknownst to her, her husband's truck failed the pre-trip inspection, and his trip has been postponed until further notice. He chooses the option to return home until the truck is up to par, only to catch his wife and the coworker in the middle of intense love-making. All hope and trust is broken, therefore the husband uses very harsh tactics seeking to end the nine-year marriage, have full custody of their daughter, and start life over again from the beginning, seeking new love and happiness.
