Set in London amongst the well-to-do, the story centers on two married couples—Alfie (Anthony Hopkins) and Helena (Gemma Jones), who have been wed for 40 years, and their daughter Sally (Naomi Watts), who is supporting her husband Roy (Josh Brolin).

When Alfie begins pursuing his lost youth with a call girl (Lucy Punch), Helena sees a fortune teller who predicts "You will meet a tall dark stranger" (perhaps the Grim Reaper?). Sally develops a crush on her boss (Antonio Banderas), while Roy becomes moonstruck over a mystery neighbor (Freida Pinto). But everyone learns there is no easy way out.
