About School Runs
When Rachel’s husband’s start-up took off, she put her promising career on hold to look after their daughters. She loved being at home with the girls. But once they started school, to avoid insanity, she followed in the footsteps of so many before her. She devoted her entire energy and time into supporting the girls’ school and the school’s community.
Nonetheless, Rachel’s life is thrown upside down, when she learns about her husband’s affair with another mother from the school, who also happens to be someone she truly hates.
When the news breaks out, Rachel is caught off guard by lack of support from her school girlfriends, who openly believe she should turn a blind eye and let the affair slide.
Over the years, Rachel lost a lot of her confidence and stamina, but deep down she knows that looking the other way isn’t in her true nature. After a period of indecisiveness and confusion driven by fear over her livelihood, and despite her limited options, Rachel chooses to separate from Jim.
The separation is just the first step on Rachel’s re-discovery journey that will bring her joy and sorrow with a pinch of sweetness that financial and emotional independence carries.
