Sheila Katz has it all: a successful amateur theater debut, a husband who looks like Robert Redford and performs in bed like a man twenty years his junior, and two wonderful grown children. True, her son became Catholic when he married – not a Jewish mother's dream. But Sheila is sure that any day now her daughter will announce her engagement to a wonderful Jewish boy. When the announcement comes though, there's one small change to Sheila's script. Jenny's intended is a wonderful Jewish girl.
With assistance from a support group, Sheila rises to the occasion and helps Jenny plan a blowout lesbian wedding. Even as she calls caterers, Sheila is keeping the affair secret from her disapproving spouse. But another secret disturbs her far more: She has become infatuated with a striking lesbian artist. Now Sheila is dreaming of an affair of her own, one that could alter her life forever.
