A vacation is a tremendous ordeal for Emma, who doesn't like to venture outside her comfort zone. It is no comfort to her that the backdrop of that vacation is the glorious Italian city of Naples and the breath-taking Amalfi coastline. Emma is particular about hygiene, nutrition, and the safeguarding of her personal space. In fact, unlike Jay, her husband, Emma is not too crazy about people in general.
Jay is Emma's greatest admirer. He is an incorrigible optimist, as well as an ardent world traveler. For the most, Jay is naively blind to the depths of Emma's quirkiness and eccentricities. However, even he is beginning to understand that the never-ending obstacles that she constantly sets up for herself are getting increasingly out of control.
