Synopsis

Thirty-something Laura has always enjoyed the wind at her back, by virtue of her good looks and exuberant, winning personality. But lately, things have taken some dark and difficult turns. Her marriage to real estate agent Bob Pehlke has become tense and loveless - Laura even suspects that he's been cheating - and her previously close relationship with her 12 year-old son Dennis has become strained as he enters adolescence. With little to sustain her outside of these two problematic relationships, Laura finds herself slipping into the habits of her happier, party-girl days having just one more beer than she should (and then another one after that), lying about whose cigarette is sitting in the ashtray of her car. Belittled by her husband and her intrusive mother Joan and sister Kathy, she's only just beginning to realize how truly lost she is.
