Emma, Leonie and Hannah all want just one thing in life - and then they'll be truly happy.
For just-married Emma, happiness means escaping the control of her domineering father and conceiving a much longed for child with her beloved husband. For Leonie, divorced mother of three teenagers, it means finding the true love that was missing from her ten-year marriage. And for Hannah, striking out alone after the man she loved abandoned her, happiness means independence and security - something she doesn't think any man can provide.
As they work out their hopes, needs and desires, Emma, Leonie and Hannah come to rely more and more on one another's support in their battles to win through. But sometimes when you wish with all your heart for a dream to come true, you risk destroying the happiness within your reach.
