Freda Lopez (Fonda), an aspiring songwriter, is going nowhere fast with her career, and her marriage has lost its sparkle; she and her graphic-artist husband (Koteas) take a vacation on Peabo Island, in the Deep South, in the hope of re-energising their lives. Freda forms a close friendship with Camilla (Tandy), eccentric owner of their beach home, who enjoys launching into a fantasy world concerning her own past career as a classical violinist. The pair hit the road and bond, each inspiring the other to unfold her life that little bit more fully. A feel-good romantic comedy which wears its heart a little too obviously on its sleeve.
