Anne Hars' husband had a serious car accident that left him with a brain injury.  During his hospitalization, she struggled to understand all the medical jargon, and figure out how to get him the best care.  And once he was back in their Los Angeles home, she struggled again to reestablish a relationship with a man who at times seemed like a stranger.
