Second Chance speaks to the vulnerability of the widowed and divorced baby boomers' loneliness, but not in a depressing way. Many are active, normal, healthy, decent men and women with children and grandchildren, yet many are lonely. Infused with humor, Second Chance is funny, charming, poignant, and real. In the Adirondack Mountains Spa Village Resort, in Upstate New York, a good mix of African American and Caucasian Baby Boomers meet the match that was chosen for them to participate in a ten-day organized matchmaking event. Each one has traveled a different path in life. Each one has a unique story. The story centers on Janet, a divorced Pharmaceutical Sales Executive whose path had left her an emotional cripple. Janet could not accept the match that was carefully chosen for her. Through a bond of friendship forged out of adversity Janet struggled to heal her wounds. She soon became unhinged after arriving at the resort and was left with no choice but to walk away from the event. She would learn to heal and love herself and find the kind of relationship that had evaded her entire adult life.
