For Peter life is simply an act of going through the motions. He keeps an ad on the fridge door as a futile reminder of an age-old ambition, practically forgotten. For Rachel, the loss of someone close continues to adumbrate her life. They arrive at a poorly attended self help seminar, which promises to help them reclaim their 'impact' on life. However, with the rediscovery of a long-lost childhood dream (and a bit of Curtis Mayfield to boot) they soon realize the true meaning of self-help.
