Spencer takes a compassionate look at a contemporary family undergoing painful transitions. Bess Curran 40 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 19-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.
