Sarah is a photojournalist for a magazine. James, her boyfriend, is a foreign correspondent. Both have returned home to their apartment in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, after suffering traumas during a stint on assignment in Afghanistan. James' wounds are largely emotional. Sarah, however, took a shrapnel hit to the face. Her mobility was also impaired when the vehicle in which she was riding was blown up. Her local guide was killed. Very much currently in their orbit are their boss Richard (who is also Sarah's long-ago lover) and Richard's new young-and-hot love Mandy. Sarah loves photography. It enables her an element of control in a world spinning madly. When she snaps the shutter of her camera, Time Stands Still. James is fine with building a normal life in New York. Sarah clearly relishes the challenge of finding the perfect image, the powerful rush that comes with taking the photo and making time stand still in a dangerous world. Can their relationship survive? Written by Donald Margulies. Directed by Joel Zwick. Starring Nicole Pacent, Jamie Zwick, Paul Urcioli, Kelly Fischer

"Director Joel Zwick has assembled a fine cast and directs them with sure-handed fidelity, using songs like “We'll Meet Again” and “I'll Be Seeing You” to bind the scenes together. Pacent captures Elizabeth's vulnerability as well as her fierce independence and ruthless critical intelligence. Zwick underlines the shock of a man who's discovering that his supposedly imperishable relationship with his partner is perishable after all, while Urcioli scores as the editor who considers both partners as his friends and strives to be loyal to both as their paths diverge. And Kelly Fischer employs considerable finesse as Mandy, Richard's blond bimbo wife, who becomes serious and responsible when faced with motherhood. Chris Winfield provides the handsome loft set, and J. Kent Insay created the light and sound design. - RECOMMENDED"

"This play stands itself as one that is loaded with drama and emotion, just short of a happy ending–or at least short of a traditional content conclusion."
