    • Synopsis
    • From the day Pauline lends him a helping hand on the bus, the suicidal, stubborn Matthew Morgan stumbles back to happiness. Swept off his old feet by the young woman's disarming vitality and unwavering optimism, the quiet teacher becomes an unlikely student of living. In their every day adventures of finding a decent meal for lunch, visiting museums, or taking trips to the country, the odd couple explores the treasures of friendship, the comfort of companionship, the taste of romance – and the meaning of family. Through their mutual restoration of faith in people who care, Pauline embraces the idea of a new kind of family while Matthew finally reconnects with his estranged son Miles (Justin Kirk) who in turn finds himself deeply affected by the changes in his father. What begins as Miles' and his sister Karen’s (Gillian Anderson) frustrated attempt to bring Matthew home to the US, leads to consequences in Miles' own life that he never expected. Just in time, father and son learn to respect each other again, to let go of the past and let in the future – and in their life lessons, they each in their own way find love and hope again.
