It was a simple plan: Engage in some innocent flirtation, feel desirable again. But finding happiness is never that easy...
Professor Julia Benson's life is drifting. With a stalled marriage, the monotony of raising a family that seems to need her less each day and the sinking feeling that she is less than she could be, Julia takes to heart her dying mother's plea: "Live, Julia. I never did."
With a student trip to Greece on the horizon, Julia hopes that the seductive climate and scenery will be the tonic she's after. Far from the pressures of home, her harmless fantasy of local men clamoring for her attention is upstaged by her flighty coeds — their youthful, uninhibited sex appeal catches the eye of every man on the island, leaving Julia feeling old, jealous and utterly defeated.
But then she meets Ted, an archaeologist with a passion for life and, seemingly, for Julia. Not knowing whether she is falling in love or merely obsessed with the idea of love, Julia makes an impulsive decision and begins unearthing the truth beneath her longing. Now, at the crossroads of her life, she must choose — abandon her old life to pursue the love she craves, or honor her commitments and turn her back on what might be her only chance at true happiness.
