Chronicling the story of one couple's love, loss and ultimate faith in one another, Not Easily Broken follows the lives of Dave (MORRIS CHESTNUT) and Clarice (TARAJI P. HENSON) Johnson in their second decade of marriage. Dave's dreams of major league baseball success were dashed by an injury in college, leading him to a steady but unfulfilling career as the head of a small construction firm. Clarice is basking in the glow of real estate stardom, creating a life that revolves around her rise to the top. She has become blind to Dave's needs, the most important being his desire to become a father and start a family with her.
They face a total disruption in their lives when a car crash seriously injures Clarice, whose meddling mother, Mary (JENIFER LEWIS), blames Dave for her daughter's leg injuries and derailed career.
Help comes in the form of kind-hearted physical therapist and single mom Julie Sawyer (MAEVE QUINLAN), whose son Bryson (CANNON JAY) is coached by Dave and his pals Brock (EDDIE CIBRIAN) and Tree (KEVIN HART) in Little League baseball. Though Clarice is helped by Julie's care, she becomes concerned that her constant criticism of Dave has pushed her husband away – possibly into the arms of the empathetic Julie. Soon Dave and Clarice must face a married couple's most serious questions: are we really meant to be together, and if we are, how do we fight to keep what we have built as man and wife?
