Bill Grant is the popular producer of a top TV soap but, separated from his ex-wife and two young sons, he badly misses family life. Adriane is a happily married news executive at the same TV station. But, when she unexpectedly becomes pregnant, her child-phobic husband deserts her rather than compromise his career with the responsibilities of parenthood. Both alone and lonely, Bill and Adriane eventually meet and quickly become close - their friendship soon deepening into love despite Adriane's pregnancy and inner longing for her husband. Caring and supportive right up to the birth, Bill never doubts his love for Adriane, though she secretly hopes the baby's arrival may rekindle her marriage. Will Bill's heart be broken again...or will Adriane finally realise who will make a more loving husband and father?
