Two bratty teenagers. One disenchanted husband. Twenty extra pounds. This is the daily existence of Raquel Rose, a California housewife whose life is much less than she thought it would be. Until she receives the shocking news that she's dying, and her world rocks sideways. Her kids stop taking her for granted. Her husband is attentive. And her picture-perfect sister - who has her own talk show - puts Raquel on TV where her story raises truckloads of money for breast cancer research. When her doctor tells Raquel that she's not sick after all, she's reluctant to trade in her shiny new life for the jalopy it was before the (mis)diagnosis. Soon, as everything flies out of control from the force of this massive whopper, she has to wonder: After forty-two years of existing for everyone else, what's so bad about finally living for herself?
