His fifteenth wedding anniversary is on the horizon, but his marriage is breaking down. In the meantime, Benedict and Estelle have focused on nothing else. They have a lot of fun. When Estelle moves out of her home, after Benedict’s reluctance to accept her childless fate, he is devastated. Benedict vows to win Estelle back – but he does not know how. One rainy night, after a disappointment with Estelle, Benedict is alone in his house. Thinking his wife has returned to his doorstep. The girl announces that she is his sixteen-year-old niece, Gemma, and she is coming from America to stay with him for the summer. Gemma and Bill decide to make a deal.
