Beth Winter, wife of a self-absorbed surgeon named Joseph, is decidedly lonely. One day while out driving with her daughter, Grace, Beth rescues a stray dog and later decides to keep it. The pooch, dubbed Freeway, fills the void in Beth's life, begins to crack Joseph's stern exterior, and acts as a matchmaker for Grace. Then, Joseph loses Freeway while out walking, leading to a frantic search that brings forth long-hidden resentments.
