Steve and his wife work late hours in the ER in L.A.. She works night shifts and he works day shifts. When she gets home she helps take care of her daughter. And dinner is that one moment when all of them are in the same room and can bond together. It's a pretty powerful message from Stouffer's. Even when you are overwhelmed with work you still have time to connect over a meal. This campaign highlights real people who describe their lives in a very unscripted way. In the other, a vet whose daughter was born right before he was deployed, comes back and counts his blessings to be able to sit down to dinner with his family, and a young married gay couple follow their best friend and roommate from Texas to New York City to um, eat Stouffer's. Since there's no set up they are busy like say, this spot or the vet whose married to the busy mom, that one feels like an outlier. But hey, two out of three ain't bad.
