Drama series. After years of happy marriage, a recent injury has thrown a light on Joy and Alan's flatlining sex life, and they decide to take desperate measures.

After years of happy marriage, Joy and Alan Richards find themselves in a sexual rut. A car crash and injury to Joy has put their sex life on hold, and now they really aren't clicking romantically at all. Suddenly both Joy and Alan find themselves drawn to new people and both are tempted to make the ultimate indiscretion. With their marriage in crisis, Joy comes up with an audacious, unorthodox but potentially brilliant proposal that will have huge ramifications for the future.
