The movie starts out showing a picture perfect family, the Campbell's. The parents Jack and Molly, played by Cole Hauser and Kate Levering respectively, have an adopted son Joey, played by Maxwell Perry Cotton, and together they live an idyllic life. That all changes when Joey's biological father Rip, played by Barry Pepper, gets out of prison and decides that he wants his child back, even though his wife Wendy, played by Mira Sorvino, put him up for adoption while Rip was in prison. After Rip and Wendy make a claim on Joey as their child and his rightful parents, a judge decides that Joey must leave the Campbell's and be returned to his biological parents. In addition to being devastated Jack and Molly are enraged that their son has been stolen away and their world turned upside down. Desperate to return to their perfect life, Jack and Molly do everything they can to get Joey back. While the slow process of Joey being returned to Rip and Wendy is playing out, Jack and Molly try every legal avenue possible to stop it from happening, and when those don't work they do some thinking outside the box and try to get him back in ways outside the legal system. In addition to the desperation of Jack and Molly to hold onto their perfect family, we see the adjustment that Rip and Wendy must make to becoming parents, as well as the adjustments they make as they try to become a couple again after Rip's time in prison and his struggles with alcohol abuse. It's a legal drama that's filled with raw emotion.
