BOUNCE is a romantic drama about two strangers, a hot shot urban ad exec and a struggling single mom, who fall in love - only one of them knows it wasn't by chance.
Buddy Amaral (Ben Affleck) is a single man and Abby Janello (Gwyneth Paltrow) is a single mom with a simple life. The only thing they have in common is that they are both trying to "bounce" back from hard times. More than simply meet, they collide into one another, or so it seems to Abby. As their relationship deepens and Abby feels she may have received that elusive second chance, she comes to realize their first meeting was not as innocent as she'd believe.
From writer/director Don Roos, BOUNCE is a story not only about romance but about romantic reality - and taking chances, plus for Ben Affleck and Gwyneth Paltrow this is the first movie they have worked opposite each other as leads.
