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?
