'I was looking forward to us growing old together. Me and you,
growing old and dying together.' 'Douglas, who in their right mind
would look forward to that?' Douglas Petersen understands his
wife's need to 'rediscover herself' now that their son is leaving
home. He just thought they'd be doing their rediscovering together.
So when Connie announces that she will be leaving, too, he resolves
to make their last family holiday into the trip of a lifetime: one
that will draw the three of them closer, and win the respect of his
son. One that will make Connie fall in love with him all over
again. The hotels are booked, the tickets bought, the itinerary
planned and printed. What could possibly go wrong?
