When playing by the rules means stepping over the line….
Sometimes starting over means trying out assault and battery, especially when the object of violence is a cheating husband caught in the act. Restraining orders aside, safety comes in numbers and having certain…standards.

For some people, it is the kindness of strangers that makes the difference, but for Jess it is the unlikely alliance of the mother-in-law from hell, a devastatingly handsome basketball coach, and a phalanx of determined team members who convince a woman of a certain age that beginning again doesn’t mean giving up or giving in.
