The year is 1982. The occasion is a family reunion of sorts. Megan, a brilliant but abrasive college professor, author, and social critic returns home after three years to visit her two sisters. Their father is in India seeking “spiritual renewal”, and their mom is serving a prison term for vehicular manslaughter. Not only does the reunion not go as hoped, but the old adage, “time heals all wounds” is rendered meaningless.

The Affair
Michael and Veronica have been involved in a torrid three-month affair. While it hasn’t been “earth-shaking” it has, up to this point, been adequate. She is married to a successful physician. He is unmarried, employed as a gardener at the country club where they met. She is bored, cynical and mature. He is childish and suffers from a profound inferiority complex. It’s a comedy.
