Three couples, friends and neighbours...Tom, lazy and charming, looks after the children and thinks about writing a novel while his ambitious wife Sarah pursues her career as a journalist.Nat is married to the unstylish Cassie, who spends her life in jodhpurs, but although an ill-matched couple they have a strong and enduring marriage.

Laure, the beautiful half-French wife of Gerard, is being shut out of his life because of financial worries.

One winter's evening, Laure and Tom dance together at a local ball, and suddenly a world of possibilities opens up between them.

Can they can forget the troubles of their own home lives and find a new excitement, a new solace?

It's only a game, after all, not for real...But playing with fire can hurt, as they both find out.
