Mason and Whitney are completely satisfied with their childless, upwardly mobile professional life. They're surrounded by close friends and are living comfortably in a brand new lakefront home in the Wasatch Mountains. Then, Whitney’s widower brother-in-law, George’s dies in a car accident. Whitney and Mason jump on a plane and head out of state to care for George’s three young children, expecting to turn them over to pre-arranged backup parents after a few days of comforting care. Instead, they find George’s estate in financial ruin and no plans for the children. Suddenly their life is changed forever. Children were never part of the plan. Unwilling to hand the children over to Family Services, Whitney and Mason bring them back home to Utah. The new parents receive support and encouragement from their friends yet find themselves struggling to combine, work and parenting. Mason begins working longer hours trying to advance his career and increase his paycheck as Whitney exhausts herself trying to be the perfect working mother. As if things couldn't get worse... they do. One unfortunate event after the other continues to shake their new family to it's core. Whitney surrenders her dream of becoming an attorney and throws herself into the mom role with gusto, determined to give these children a good life, as Mason's eye begins to wander toward a cute co-worker.
