In June 1933, eight young women, who are close friends and members of the upper-class group at South Tower College, graduate and start their adult lives. The film documents the years between their graduation and the beginning of the Second World War in Europe, and shows, in a serialized style, their romances and marriages, their searches for careers or meaning in their lives, their highs and their lows.

The setting is supposed to be between 1933-40, however some of the ladies' hairstyles reflect the styles of the mid-60s. Libby (Jessica Walter) is the most notorious of the group, her up-do with pigtails at Kay & Harald's party being the most obvious of the styles. See more
