A mother and wife stricken with memory loss allows a dysfunctional family a second chance at harmony and happiness.

Life in suburban Serenity, Ohio is never quite as serene as it appears.ÔøΩAnd just when the Burnett familyÔøΩ-ÔøΩBunnie (Hope Davis), Jack (Dermot Mulroney) and their twin 17 year oldsÔøΩEric (Max Theriot) and Kelly (Britt Robertson) – seems a lost cause, they get an unlikely and unexpected second chance at happiness when an unusual accident leavesÔøΩBunnie with aÔøΩcase of amnesia. For Jack, work has become a disheartening mix of begging for promotion and empty flirting with co-workers.ÔøΩBunnieÔøΩintersperses charity work withÔøΩplayful trysts with their next door neighbor Simon Krebbs (Chi McBride). When one of these liaisons leaves BunnieÔøΩunconscious, her memory loss confuses everyone – but no one more than Bunnie, who cannot remember her bad marriage, her children, or even the affair that caused her amnesia. BunnieÔøΩs new ÔøΩlack of awarenessÔøΩÔøΩmasks the BurnettÔøΩs problems for a while.ÔøΩAnd with Jack getting hisÔøΩlong-sought promotion and “new Bunnie” feeling closer than ever to Jack and her children, things seem to finally be settling down.ÔøΩBut before long, a stew of past relationships, kids with guns, suicidal teachers, a very zealous religious club, misinterpreted advances, corporate down-sizing, and one very tricky mother-in-law combine to create enough mayhem to test the resolve, sanity and future of any family!
