Overview
Three very different women. One daring leap of faith. Kyra Sedgwick (Something to Talk About), Parker Posey (Best in Show) and Fairuza Balk (Almost Famous) star in this "completely compelling" (The Hollywood Reporter) drama about three women who set out to change their lives. Winner of the 2002 Sundance Festival’s Grand Jury Prize, this passionate, poignant and bracing film delivers "a muscular punch" (Screen International)!

Delia (Sedgwick) escapes from an abusive husband. Greta (Posey) risks everything on a new career. And Paula (Balk) takes flight after a tragic accident. These women must overcome seemingly insurmountable obstacles that confine them. But are they really on their way to new lives – or are they just making new versions of old mistakes?
