Judd and Quinn visit their families… The Uptons have Judd and Quinn talk about their sex lives… Quinn has an unexpected reaction to an injury Judd receives…
“Are you blaming your infidelity on my mother?” Paul asks her, his face going red.
“That’s not what I’m saying.”
“Then what are you saying, dear?” my mother asks. She’s calm, her voice steady, but her eyes are hard.
Quinn has her hands up in defence. “I’m just saying that he had to keep things from you so they didn’t get in the book and that carried on into our marriage. That’s all. It just made things so unbearably hard.” She looks at my mother. “But I forgive you.”
“You bitch!” Paul yells. Phillip is laughing. Alice is starting to cry.
Still reeling from the shock of discovering his wife's infidelity, Judd Altman learns that he has lost his father and will be one himself. His soon to be ex-wife, Quinn, is pregnant with his child.
After almost losing the baby, Wade (Judd's old boss and Quinn's lover) realizes the truth about himself and his relationship with Quinn and leaves her. Judd, in the face of Quinn's situation, forgives her, but cannot reconcile their marriage.
With nothing but a stolen Porsche, Judd drives to Maine with limitless possibilities. A man with nothing has nothing to lose, and a man with nothing to lose can do anything.
Twenty Four Weeks begins with Judd's time of reflection in Maine and his eventual decision to return to New York City, to take back the life that has been so cruelly taken from him. Sometimes humorous, this bitter-sweet tale is full of hope, love and forgiveness.
With characters and back story based on the novel "This is Where I Leave You" by Jonathan Tropper, Twenty Four Weeks is set after the events of the movie of the same name.
