A well-to-do Manhattan housewife, Alice Tate (Mia Farrow), finds her affections shifting from her stockbroker husband (William Hurt) of 16 years to saxophone player Joe Ruffalo (Joe Mantegna), a veritable stranger. After realizing her feelings, Tate begins to experience back pains and visits a Chinatown herbalist, Dr. Yang (Keye Luke), for a cure. Perceptive to her dilemma, Yang provides a series of magical herbal remedies to provide Tate the insight she needs to solve her problem.
Unhappily married Depression-era waitress Cecilia (Mia Farrow) earns the money while her inattentive husband, Monk (Danny Aiello), blows their meager income on getting drunk and gambling. To assuage her loneliness, Cecilia escapes to the picture show and becomes transfixed with the movie "The Purple Rose of Cairo," and especially with its lead character, archeologist Tom Baxter (Jeff Daniels). When Tom literally steps off of the screen and into her life, both realities are thrown into chaos.
