Former independent bookstore owners Xan Thompson (Seana Koefod) and Peter Kirby (David Burke) have sold their souls to the corporate world. The daily grind has snuffed out their passion for books... and each other. Grace (Jamie Murray) sends Phoebe (Autumn Reeser) into the workplace to reignite the spark of passion between these two estranged lovers. Meanwhile, Ari (Greg Ellis) arranges a secret meeting with Danny (Kristoffer Polaha) to warn him that mysterious forces are conspiring against the family. Ari needs Danny to convince Ray (Patrick Fabian), the god of technology, to help his cause. But Ray doesn't trust Ari. He's also terrified that Ari might discover the affair Ray is having with Grace, Ari's wife.
