Synopsis

A group of lesbian and straight women, who went to school together and were in a political theatre group in the late 1970s, reunite for a weekend when the long-standing couple among them has a baby. These old friends gradually confront who they were then, who they are now, and the past and current unresolved dynamics among them. Their repartee reveals with irony, humor and a touch of nostalgia how their lives, politics and loves have changed. By the end of the weekend, each woman leaves with a new understanding, commitment to, and definition of family.
