Synopsis

After twenty years of happy marriage Sam Mercer (Brian Dennehy) is still very much in love with his wife Eliza (Blythe Danner). However, his happiness is threatened when he meets Nell (Jacqueline Bisset), who has radically different ideas about love and marriage. She is a free spirit, who doesn't care for convention or stability. Sam is shocked to discover that Nell is dying, and this news strikes at the very heart of the marriage, and has far reaching consequences for all three amorous protagonists.
