This Fire Down In My Soul

Faye uses sessions from three of her three counseling clients to make the ultimate decision in her failing marriage. Housewife Tess has spent the past 23 years catering to her to two grown sons and her husband Jesse. After learning about her husband's affair, Tess must decide if and when she will learn to live for herself.

Interior decorator Renee only needs a man for one thing, and as hard as she tries, her very married client Lewis may be the only one qualified to scratch her itch.
