Sometimes working to obtain the things we want out of life can take priority over truly living in that life. Everything seems to be on track for thirty year-old Carmen Perdue. She has a career she loves, a home of her own, and a best friend for sharing all her secrets with. But a sudden, serious medical condition threatens to turn her life upside down, and cause her to re-evaluate what's truly important. Forced to examine her life and take things at a different pace, Carmen-with the help of her supportive best friend, her combative mother, estranged sister, and a new man in her life-learns that it's not always the final destination that we should be living for. It's to have a few good days along the way.
