Spanning three generations, this story is about a mismatched marriage and
its consequences. Michael and Pauline seemed like the perfect couple;
young, good-looking, made for each other. The moment she walked into his
mother's grocery store in Baltimore, he was smitten, and in the heat of
World War II fervour, they marry in haste. Over time they discover that
their different personalities and approaches to life are taking a toll on
their relationship and their family.
