She HATES the gym) and is whisked off to the hospital, where she discovers the honeymoon is truly over - she’s getting divorced, she has three kids, and she’s actually 39 years old. 

Alice must reconstruct the events of a lost decade and find out whether it’s possible to reconstruct her life at the same time.

Ultimately, Alice must discover whether forgetting is a blessing or a curse, and whether it’s possible to start over....
