A group of women, including Skipper (Daryl Hannah), the wealthy young Jennifer (Maggie Gyllenhaal) and the domineering Nan (Marcia Gay Harden), journey from the United States to South America in hopes of easily adopting children. Unfortunately, their plans are complicated by local laws that require the women to live in the foreign nation for an extended period before they can take in orphaned kids. While stuck in another country, the women bond as they share their aspirations and anxieties.
