When her inability to commit leads to a breakup with her girlfriend (Julianne Nicholson), opera-loving writer Allegra (Elizabeth Reaser) winds up in the bed of amiable professor Philip (Justin Kirk). He is so smitten with Allegra that he dumps his lover, Grace (Gretchen Mol), and convinces Allegra to continue their affair.
