Synopsis

Wallace Avery is divorced, disconnected from his young son, dissatisfied with his love life and depressed and about middle age, so he decides to walk away from his old life. He takes on a new identity as Arthur Newman and heads for Terre Haute, Indiana, to reinvent himself as a golf pro at a tiny country club. Along the way he finds Michaela "Mike" Fitzgerald passed out poolside at a seedy roadside motel. Mike sees through Arthur's identity scam, and he soon finds that she's a kleptomaniac fleeing from her own domestic turmoil. Romance blossoms on the road to Indiana as some painful secrets unfold and their new lives take shape. But is it possible to truly start all over again?
