Parker Posey plays Greta, a cookbook editor struggling with issues of fidelity to her kind but unexciting husband. Delia, played by Kyra Sedgewick, is an isolated yet determined woman who leaves her abusive husband to rediscover her independence. Fairuza Balk plays Paula, a troubled young woman who embarks on a journey after a fateful accident one night. Seemingly unconnected, the three women are bound together by a common desire to change the direction of their lives.
