Two lives disrupted.
One reason: they have a newborn.
Where can they find the respite they so recently lost and crave? Can they, as individuals, still exist? Is there an escape when someone else requires you to shut down your life and give them everything?
No. Yes. Maybe?
The shower. Two showers.
Liz, hungry for her own thoughts and career, struggles to step out of her “mom” responsibilities and allow herself space to step into her life again, for a few minutes.
Mike, confronted with his tendency toward absence and the pesky little requirements of having a job, struggles to redefine deeply rooted habits and roles when his family needs him in the one place he can’t always be: home.
The Shower Principle: it’s when you’re simply living, going through the everyday process, like taking a shower, and then all of a sudden, out of nowhere, an idea sparks--and life becomes a little more clear.
