The death of a child is one of the most heartbreaking and unimaginable things that can happen to any couple. In this difficult-to-watch but hugely rewarding film, Maggie (played by Minnie Driver) gives birth to a stillborn baby, and she and husband Aaron turn to alcoholism and extramarital affairs to cope with the loss.
