When the husband of their friend Serena (Joyce Van Patten) dies, Ira (James Garner) and Maggie Moran (Joanne Woodward), an older married couple, make an event out of their day's travel to the funeral. Examining life and marriage on their journey, the couple of 29 years remains as in love today as when they first met -- despite being near opposites in personality. However, their love and respect for one another cut through all the differences between them.
Tragedy befalls Congresswoman Nell Harrington (Joanne Woodward) and her family when her son-in-law dies in a car accident, and Harrington's pregnant daughter, Phoebe (Laura Linney), is propelled into a downward spiral. Things gets worse when Harrington learns that her son-in-law was on cocaine at the time of the accident, and her daughter was using right along with him. What does this mean for Harrington's impending Senate campaign -- and the health of Phoebe's unborn child?
