Fort Lauderdale, Florida, in 1978: After a string of abusive relationships and dead-end jobs, Christina Miller comes to the realization that there's nothing left for her and her two young daughters, 13-year-old MJ and 7-year-old Shell, in blue-collar Ohio. An inviting phone call from her free-spirited friend Sandy is all Christina needs to pack up her belongings and load the kids into a Chrysler bound for Fort Lauderdale.
Great weather, a vibrant social scene, and a liberal lifestyle are attractive to Christina, and Sandy delivers right away, getting Christina a job cleaning houses in a wealthy neighborhood. But it soon becomes apparent to Christina that the huge, empty mansions she is dusting are merely a front for something much bigger. And that larger sure looks much better than the way Christina and the kids have been surviving. What lies ahead is a true story of a mom making choices — many, in hindsight could be questionable at best; however, Christina always had making a better life for her kids in the forefront of her thoughts.

Musician Robert (John Shea) is a perpetual starving artist with low overhead and minimal commitments. When Robert's daughter announces she's engaged, he advises her against it — his own marriage to Emily (Lea Thompson) didn't last, and he doesn't understand why anyone would want to give up her independence. Yet when Robert and Emily reunite and dredge up old memories and hurts, both discover a lot of unresolved issues and that love, marriage, and divorce aren't quite as simple as they'd like.
