Plot[edit]

Suzanne Dutchman (Demi Moore) seems to be a happily married wife. Her husband Mark (Dylan McDermott) is a businessman that continuously travels and is very well known. One day at a dinner party, Mark speaks to a client, Howard (James McCaffrey) about a deal whilst Suzanne speaks with her close friend Deanna (Viva Bianca). As Suzanne and Mark are on their way home it is revealed that the couple aren't so happy after all.

Howard is caught by an undercover female agent for using and dealing cocaine and reveals many issues involving Mark. Mark is then arrested and Suzanne is facing charges for supporting him in his actions. The judge feels sympathy for Suzanne and mentions that she understands that Suzanne was unaware of her husband's actions and sentences her to 100 hours of community service only.

Suzanne follows up with her court order and begins reading for visually-impaired / blind man Bill Oakland (Alec Baldwin) - an author and English lecturer. During her time with Bill, Suzanne develops feelings for him and also finds out about her husband's affair which leans her towards Bill even more.
