A successful architect suddenly finds herself the reluctant guardian of two children. A New York cabbie ponders his previous incarnation as an investment banker. A mother-in-law and daughter-in-law maintain an uneasy truce based on a delusion. A postgraduate student encounters a mystery from his past in a foreign land. A young woman discovers an unlikely cure for self-consciousness. Clear-eyed children observe adult hypocrisies. And romance is found in all the wrong places.”
