Cheryl Ladd and Michael Nouri star in this highly-charged romantic drama about two successful single parents who fall in love and have to confront many new and traumatic changes in their lives. Melanie is a top TV news reporter, living in New York with her two teenage daughters. Peter is a handsome, divorced heart surgeon working at an L.A. hospital with three children of his own. A chance meeting leads to instant romance and eventual marriage, bringing out the drastic changes in their lives... not all of them good. The clash of their careers is nothing compared to the storm of emotions that is unleashed when all five children have to share the same home and a whole new set of ground rules. The family disharmony is more than Melanie can cope with and she finally quits the home, pregnant and feeling desperately hurt and alone. Can the children come to their senses and bury their differences? And can Peter finally let go of his past and make the necessary compromises, or risk losing Melanie forever?
