Plot Summary
Uptight single woman Alma Winemiller (Geraldine Page) carries a torch for the boy next door, who has grown up into dashing doctor John Buchanan Jr. (Laurence Harvey). An unabashed hedonist, John falls for the sensual Rosa Zacharias (Rita Moreno) and enjoys carefree nights out on the town, an approach to life that starkly contrasts with Alma's reserved manner. While Alma attempts to come out of her shell, John also reconsiders his impulsive ways, leading to the possibility of romance.
