I didn't like it that much, but probably well done
Jo is a veterinarian in the Boston area and the wife of Daniel, a minister. One of Jo's patients is a dog in such bad shape he may need to be put down. The dog's owner turns out to be Eli, one of the group Jo used to share a house with during her hippie days. Through flashbacks, we see the young people from their time in the house.

Jo is unhappy in her marriage and tempted to cheat. Not only that, but Eli has a deep dark secret. Jo is not particularly religious despite who her husband is, but she does have moral dilemmas to face.

This was probably a well-done movie, but I didn't like it that much. There was a violent incident which was probably necessary to the plot, but we didn't actually need to see the blood. One good thing about this movie: it didn't hide religious faith, though most of Jo's friends didn't practice 'mainstream' religion, if they were religious at all. The best thing was probably the moral struggle Jo had to go through.
