Synopsis:

Olivia and Sanders Wilson were married for 21 years and raised two children who are now young adults.  Four years ago, for a variety of reasons, the coupled divorced and Olivia moved to Indianapolis and became a bank manager, while Sanders remained in Fort Wayne and ran his architectural firm.  The couple is brought together again when Olivia has a heart attack and Sanders insists on being her caregiver during her rehabilitation.  There are moments of angst and anger as issues from the past seep into their interactions.  There is also caring and compassion which provides the proof that whatever the problems were in the past, love never was the issue.
