This story revolves around family drama, with a couple headed towards divorce but a 40 day manual given to the husband by his father saves the marriage. Caleb is a professional fire fighter who has dedicated his life to saving people in fire incidences. He is married to Catherine, a nurse but is more devoted to his work than his wife. Caleb is also addicted to pornography and this causes a rift between them too. Catherine feels neglected and not appreciated while Caleb on the other hand feels tired about all her nagging and accusations.
They are at the verge of divorce when John, Caleb's father intervenes and discourages his son from proceeding with the plan. He gives him a manual with 40 days instructions on how to love his wife and treat her better. His efforts are however met with resistance, since Catherine believes he is doing that to get a favorable settlement after their divorce.
Caleb's determination to save his marriage grows even more after a colleague at work reminds him of his dedication to save fire victims while he cannot save his own family from falling apart. He decides to keep trying even after receiving a cold treatment at every attempt. He even confronts a doctor that has been flirting with his wife and informs him that he will fight to get her back at all cost. Even after the 40 days are over with no much progress, Caleb keeps trying and eventually he succeeds.
