Despite his efforts to aid Ruth back to her former self, she has become bitter, emotionally withdrawn, and resents Walter's constant coddling. As their hostile home environment intensifies, Walter grows increasingly discouraged, and a confrontation is unavoidable. However, an unexpected revelation forces Walter to make a change in order to save his marriage.
Life is delicate, but what seems broken can be repaired.
