Now her children have grown up, they are ready to forge lives of their own. They all choose to play against the odds, much to their mother's dismay.

She tells herself she can make a life with him - but can she? Julie, a young designer, meets a man who seems too good to be true and falls under his spell. She marries him quickly, gives up her job, moves to LA to be at his side - is all what it seems?
