(Charles Miler) and Billie (Cassandra Freeman) are a married working
couple in New York, but even working as semi-successful blue-collar
workers leaves little time for their marriage, much less for romance.
Kofi is a lawyer and Billie is the boss of her own small graphic
design business. As Kofi tries to make time to spend with Billie, he
soon finds himself resisting the charms of free spirited Sophie
(Mirasol Miranda). Billie all the meanwhile has her own secret which
she is hiding from Kofi as well in Lanre Olabisi's Somewhere In
The Middle (2015).

on the other hand, is a control freak and cares more about her social
business than her marriage, but secretly she is a closet lesbian (and

have affairs, but who we blame the failed marriage on is effected by
social rules and whoever is the alpha in the relationship.
