Raymond and Trent are settled in Seattle, where Trent’s career as an architect has blossomed and Raymond’s law practice is booming. All seems well. Then, late one night, Raymond gets a call from a United States Senator that threatens everything he’s built.

Raymond, facing a crisis of faith, travels to New York hoping for the support of his best friend, Jared, who’s moved North after five years in Atlanta. His wife, Nicole, is performing in a revival of Dreamgirls, her lifelong fantasy at last coming true. Nicole is thrilled to return to the stage, but when things start to go wrong, her young and beautiful understudy, Yancey Harrington Braxton, steps into the spotlight a little too smoothly. And Nicole, far from achieving her dream, is suddenly forced to reevaluate her life and her marriage.
