A British housewife faces a difficult decision in this realistic drama. Alison is the young wife and mother whose life is turned upside down after her beloved husband, Steve, is involved in a motorcycle crash, suffers massive head trauma and awakens with the mental and emotional capacity of a 5-year-old. Much of the story centers on the mundane aspects of being forced to deal with the loss of her husband as a man and the acquisition of him as a child. Matters are not helped by Steve's overbearing mother. Time passes and things do not improve. Slowly even Steve's closest friends begin withdrawing their support. Eventually Alison is forced to decide whether she will continue to stick by Steve, or whether she will go on without him.
