Synopsis: After 14 years of marriage, Britt and Joe called it quits, so Joe is surprised when, three years later, Britt asks him to try again. Cheater Joe still loves his ex and their boys, so he’s willing to go along with date-nights and counseling — until he realizes that Britt has a very specific agenda.
