It’s Christmastime, 1950, in the affluent Manhattan suburb of New Canaan, Connecticut. Bennie Grant leaves her life as a trophy wife of a successful man to follow her dream of being a director on Broadway. The rub is a custody battle over her young daughter. There are hurdles: Will’s meddling mother, Bennie’s confessed affair with her best friend, Alice, and Will’s fight to keep Bennie at any cost.
What could make things more complicated? Bennie meets a charismatic woman, Laura, to whom she is irresistibly attracted.
