Lesbian romantic comedy. Flunked law student Maggie (Karyn Dwyer) now works for the highly strung Frances in her Vancouver bookshop, and thinks she has found the love of her life when she meets artist Kim (Christina Cox). All goes well between Maggie and Kim until Maggie's recently divorced mother, Lila (Wendy Crewson) - who is unaware of Maggie's sexuality - announces her intention to come and visit. While Maggie frets over choosing to 'out' herself to her mother, Lila is befriended by her transsexual friend Judy (Peter Outerbridge), and gradually comes to appreciate the truth about her daughter's social group.
