Middle-aged widow Rebecca Davitch (Blythe Danner) looks back and wonders whether she took the right path in life. Her husband died after only a few years of marriage, and ever since she's been managing his three spoiled daughters, their cranky Uncle Poppy (Jack Palance) and the family business. In between planning Poppy's upcoming 100th birthday and commiserating with her brother-in-law, Zeb (Peter Riegert), she reconnects with her old sweetheart, Will (Peter Fonda), to see what might have been.
The Mulvaneys, a seemingly perfect family, are nearly destroyed after daughter Marianne (Tammy Blanchard) is raped at the school prom. Patriarch Michael (Beau Bridges) descends into alcoholism afterward, while mother Corinne (Blythe Danner) tries to deny the incident happened. As her relationship with her parents becomes cold and distant, Marianne is sent away to a relative's home, and her once-pristine reputation is left to be dragged through the mud until one of her brothers takes action.
