Short Synopsis
Bess Curran is shaken from her comfortable, independent, post-divorce life when her daughter becomes pregnant and plans a wedding in which she asks both parents to walk her down the aisle.

Full Synopsis
Bess Curran, forty, is an interior designer in the Minneapolis/St. Paul area, still lonely and bitter after her traumatic divorce six years earlier. Her adult daughter, Lisa, anxious for her parents to reconcile, arranges a surprise dinner meeting where she informs them that she is pregnant and about to marry. Bess and former husband Michael (he left her for another woman, who, in turn, has just left him) can barely control their mutual animosity yet must come to grips with the startling news. To exacerbate matters, their nineteen-year-old son, Randy, is intractably hostile toward his father and seems headed for a future of drugs and unsavory companions. Bess and Michael are attracted to each other but wary—they're suffering and groping for help.
