Pushing 30, Debby (Uma Thurman) finds herself anxiously single, despite the fact that she and her best friend Beth (Juliette Lewis) spend every night at Ollie's searching for Mr. Right. When Rick comes in the bar one night, Debby pegs him as her dream guy. In spite of the energy the women invest in finding a mate, preserving their relationship with each other is their primary desire. But it is this bond that lurches out of balance when the men in their lives threaten to take their love away.
Successful lawyer Michael Pierson (Aidan Quinn) is gay, but he has always hidden this part of his life from his mother, Katherine (Gena Rowlands), father, Nick (Ben Gazzara), and grandmother Beatrice (Sylvia Sidney). But when Michael discovers he has AIDS and is dying of complications from the disease, he must open up to his parents and the rest of his family. Though fearful of their reactions, he introduces them to his longtime lover, Peter (D.W. Moffett), and looks to them for support.
