Seat of Power

John and Estelle Angione have been married for nearly 25 years. They were childhood sweethearts. They are as New York as can be. With their children finally grown, they have recently seperated. Now John is basically a good guy, but like most guys in this situation, he's unknowingly taken Estelle for granted for far too long. Estelle, ever the dutiful wife, was always the one cooking, cleaning, shopping, and seeing to the children, while John would go off to work, return home, only to settle into his favorite easy chair with remote in hand. Until one day when Estelle had finally had enough. To John it was like someone dropped a bomb on his happy little home when Estelle asked him to leave. Now finding himself alone in a tiny apartment, John is miserable. While Estelle has begun to explore her new found freedom. Deep down they love each other, they've shared far too much to find true happiness with anyone else. They just need a push in the right direction, intentional or not. Enter Nurse Practioner Lucy Flores.
