(mbc.net) Anna and Ben have to cope with the fact that their parents, Jackie and Luke, have divorced and that there is a new woman in their father's life.

Isabel is a successful photographer who loves her job but tries to make time to befriend Luke’s children and form a bond with them.

But Jackie, a full-time mother, regards Isabel's efforts as offensively insufficient. She can't understand that work can be important to her as well as the kids.

The conflict between them is deepened by the sudden diagnose of cancer, which might may be deadly for Jackie. They all have to learn a little in order to grow together.
