While waiting in the bar of a crowded upscale restaurant, a chance meeting leaves Barb and Josh (who are married, but not to each other) wondering "what if?". "What if" we gave up some of the things we love for love? "What if" we should later change our minds? "What if" we had met someone else earlier? "What if" we met them later? "What if" love at first sight isn't love at first sight? "What if" it is?
