Birdee Pruitt finds out her husband Bill has been having an affair with her best friend when they all take part in a daytime chat show. Humiliated, she leaves Chicago for her small home town, where all her old friends and neighbours have seen the show and are revelling in her downfall from once high-and-mighty prom queen. Except for Justin Matisse, an ex-school friend who has secretly carried a torch for her for years.
