Cast & Crew
Three working class, New Jersey women go on a quest for love and meaning that threatens the very relationships they share with each other.
Best friends Debby and Beth (both pushing thirty) go looking for love in the wrong place -- namely their favorite bar, Ollie's. Rugged contractor Rick eyes Beth but ends up going home with the more assertive Debby. Beth's style is further cramped by the responsibilities of single motherhood. As Debby tries to parlay what was essentially a casual fling into possible marriage with an indifferent Rick, her mother Virginia wonders if her affair with widower Nick is the real thing. Rounding out the romantic possibilities is Bobby, the bartender who flirts with Beth. The women clash as plans go awry, tragedy strikes, and hearts broken. In the end, Debby, Beth and Virginia find, if not the relationships of their dreams, peace with each other and within themselves.
