Indie comedy drama starring Marcia Gay Harden and Leonor Watling. Madelyn (Harden) knows that her husband is having an affair with the much younger Lucy (Watling). In a bid to resolve the situation, she befriends Lucy, and the two end up making a pact to help improve their lives: each will do as the other advises. But things get complicated when both women become involved in an amateur production of King Lear, with Lucy playing The Fool and Madelyn playing Lear. Just like Lear, Madelyn must now face up to some of life's most difficult issues: mortality, betrayal, loyalty and love.
