SYNOPSIS: 
This film is about Mara, a young and successful tenure-track professor, who is somewhat-happily married to Damian. They live in Toronto with their young child. Mara is struggling in her marriage while finishing her dissertation and working as a TA. While very knowledgeable and passionate about literature, she is self-conscious about her prospects of becoming an instructor. She is high strung and nervous around the professor that she assists. While going through her daily routines, Mara begins to ponder the times before she was married, when her life had adventure and spontaneity.
