The End of the World as We Knew It

Facing a personal crisis and taking a break from her marriage of twenty years, Haley has gone to Maine, connected with an old friend and started writing again. Her husband Charlie has already been questioning the realities of life, and Haley’s leaving finds him sharing his misery with Gabe, a man who can lend a sympathetic ear only up to a point. Gabe and Charlie go in search of Haley and some answers, but the answers are not quite what they expect.
