Megan Mills (Kristy Swanson) has led a very successful company for years, despite the great sacrifices to her family relationship.

Now they’re headed to college at Kay State University, but Megan is far too busy to see them off. Suddenly, Megan’s investing partner announces that he’s sold the business from beneath her, making her a wealthy woman. Megan tells Mike, who’s thrilled until she informs him that she plans on accepting a new position immediately with the new owners of the business. Disappointed in her decision to once again prioritize her work over family, Mike files for separation and enrolls at Kay State to be close to the kids and finally pursue the degree he’s always wanted.
