Hope comes with letting go.
  • Your Catwoman impersonation would cheer me up...

A happily married couple are hit by tragedy when the husband is killed. His best friend, formerly a lawyer, is now a recovering heroin addict. His wife, suddenly alone, feels out of her depth with her two kids. She decides to invite the heroin addict to stay in the garage, and he accepts. In a way both know that they need each other, as a link to the dead husband. As things progress, they find themselves helping to heal each other.
