During what was to have been a romantic weekend with his latest infatuation, Marin, at her mother's Hamptons beach house, Harry develops chest pains. He winds up being nursed by Marin's reluctant mother, Erica Barry - a successful, divorced New York playwright. In the process, Harry develops more heart pangs - the romantic kind - for Erica, an age appropriate woman whom he finds beguiling.
However, some habits die hard. When Harry hesitates, his charming thirty-something doctor steps in and starts to pursue Erica. And Harry, who has always had the world on a string, finds his life unraveling.
A sophisticated romantic comedy which proves that in matters of the heart, you can expect the unexpected.
