Synopsis

After selling his Ohio auto-parts plant, Sam hopes to celebrate his retirement by taking his wife Fran on a romantic getaway to Europe. Instead, Sam ends up watching with growing distaste as Fran reinvents herself as a younger, more urbane woman--one who starts to look too European for a self-made, heartland, capitalist like him.
