Storyline

After years of disagreeing on what true happiness, success, and love really are, Dave and Clarice Johnson have finally reached a breaking point in their marriage. When Clarice is hurt in a car accident, the obvious truth that more than just her injuries need immediate attention is exposed. Their odds of making it worsen as Clarice begins to see a physical therapist, and Dave develops a friendship with Julie and her teenage son Bryson. The acceptance and comfort he finds in them stirs his longing for a family and a passionate partner. As temptation tugs at Dave and Clarice pulls farther away, they must confront whether their vows are or are NOT EASILY BROKEN. Written by Anonymous

Quotes

Dave Johnson: Down through history men have always been measured by how hard they work and cultivated, how well the protected their wife and children. In the old days woman saw their man as conquerers, providers, heroes. But somewhere along the line that change, woman started to became their own hero, maybe it was because their man forgot to be relic or because woman don't want to be protected anymore or maybe woman had to be their own hero because of the pain they had to endure in life.

Loved It!
9 January 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie was truly touching! I saw so much that could be learned regarding marriage and family. The leading characters really played their parts well. I often felt bad for Morris's character because "Clarice" was a trip. :) I'm thankful for movies like these and would love to see more. My eyes welled up at different parts and the story line was not as predictable as I thought it was going to be. I recommend this movie for any and everybody that want to see a real picture of marriage and how different things can come in and douse whatever flame a married couple once had. Thank you TD Jakes for making such a hearty movie. I look forward to seeing more like these!
