Kate was a mother of 2 kids. she and her husband Richard had a good life despite each having a career of their own, having to rely on an undergraduate with their kids most of the time. as much as Kate wanted to be there for her children's "firsts", it was almost impossible to achieve. things became even more difficult when Kate happened to receive a promotion at the same time as her husband that require her to travel a lot, meeting with client.
the story circled around Kate's work and life balance. we watched as she sometimes failed and later struggled to regain her balance, sometimes even as serious as putting her family and marriage life in jeopardy. despite the possible love development between Kate and her client, we were pleased to find her uninterested. obviously after being pushed around long enough in her higher position, she decided to put her foot down and draw the line. Kate was a likable character, often leaving behind big impression, despite the awkwardness sometimes, she engaged us into the storyline.
