A provocative contemporary romance that poses complex questions about modern marriage: How much time should a couple remain together before they can call their marriage a success? Why does divorce automatically mean failure? And can the institution of marriage evolve with our changing times? For Leela and Riley Franklin, the seven-year itch is an all too real phenomenon. After they celebrate their eighth wedding anniversary, and witness some of their closest friends calling it quits, the two agree to try something unorthodox to avoid going down the same predictable path. That's when Free Fridays is born. The last Friday of every month is free: Leela and Riley get an unconditional free pass. They can do whatever they want, with whomever, wherever, with no questions asked, the one rule being that there are no strings attached. At first, it seems like the perfect arrangement. Both Leela and Riley are enjoying their cake as they get to eat it, too. But it doesn't take long before trouble rears its ugly head. Soon, they realize that you can't always get what you want but sometimes-that's okay.
