Margaret is the generic American housewife. Caretaker of children, plants and dishes, she has the monotonous rhythm of a woman who has hit an emotional and sexual cul-de-sac. This dead end comes in the form of the mediagenic American husband, Roger, who loves her and fathered her children, but has all the romanticism of frozen yogurt. Marge is a loyal wife, however, so she dares not wander outside the enclosures of marriage, and keeps to herself for the most part, with the exception of her good friend, with whom she visits the theatre every week. Suffice it to say, she is acquainted with a kindly gentleman, Tom Doster, who propositions her for coffee. From that point onwards, Margaret finds it hard to turn him away and the attraction strengthens with every encounter between the duo. Her sideline love interest conflicts with her domestic responsibilities and persona, therefore it is just a short matter of time before everything fizzles between she and Tom. But, there is also a flicker of hope for them aswell. It is an innocent, yet well acted TV drama, and I recommend it to those who have thought of experimenting with other people while in a relationship.
