Delia (Sedgwick) is a young mother stuck in an abusive relationship with her husband of twelve years. One night after he
brutally beats her, Delia finally attempts to reclaim some of the power she's completely lost. Greta (Posey) is a cookbook
editor at a crossroads in life, "rotten with ambition" and semi-struggling with issues of fidelity to her kind but unexciting
husband. And Paula (Balk) is thrust into crisis after having a near-death experience. Driving to her mother's house in
upstate New York, she picks up a hitchhiker, a badly beaten young boy who helps her discover a new sense of spirit.
As each story unfolds, each woman finds herself forced to make a decision -- one that will change her life forever.
Based on Rebecca Miller's book of short stories.
