Additional Info

Alan Warner, whose wife is hospitalized for exploratory surgery, is joined in the lounge by Carol Stewart Brennan, who has just brought her husband to the emergency room as a precaution. They could not be more polarized: Carol is educated and wealthy; Alan dropped out of school and barely gets by as a house painter. The painful discovery that their spouses are both critically ill overrides their differences, and they develop a codependency that evolves from offering and receiving moral support into a physical and emotional relationship that seems to be heading toward a "life after death" existence. The situation is exacerbated when Alan realizes that his wife is even closer to death than originally anticipated; while Carol's husband, having miraculously emerged from a coma, will survive after all. Carol and Alan are forced to deal with what has happened between them and their future.
