Though a successful magazine writer in her 30s, Pamela Drury (Griffiths) is alone and miserable. She's been attracted to a crisis counselor named Ben (Winton), but he turns out to be married. On yet another solitary birthday, she runs across a photo of Robert Dickson (Roberts), an old flame whose marriage proposal she turned down 13 years before. What would life have been like if she had said yes? A freak accident places Pamela in the role of Robert's wife, with three kids to boot. She's still her old self, and doesn't know her way around this new environment, but only the youngest boy, Rupert, recognizes she's not who everyone else thinks she is. Pamela and Robert enjoy each other, but she also tries an affair with Ben, who turns out to be single in this alternate reality. Not terribly deep or moving, this 1999 Australian film by writer-director Pip (aka Philippa) Karmel is nevertheless charming and funny, and features an excellent performance by Griffiths (who also excelled in "Hilary and Jackie" and went on to greater things two years later in the cable TV series "Six Feet Under").
