Quinn gives Judd an unexpected and early birthday present… The show starts to move in a different direction… A tragedy cancels counselling…
“Just so you know,” she says, looking at me now, “if I wasn’t fighting you now, I’d be crying. He helped us when we were unhelpable.”
“That’s not a word.”
“You can be an asshole sometimes, you know that?”
“I think you’ve told me a few times before.”
“I don’t care that it’s not a word. You understand what it means. He helped you to forgive me again, and I’m not going to let you fuck that up again, you hear me? You don’t have to feel anything until you’re ready, but I’m feeling something and I need you.”
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.
