Three stories of Angelenos linked linearly by people associated with each are told. In story one, Mamie works as a psychologist at an abortion clinic, she, in addition to providing counseling, assessing mental fitness and thus approving or declining the request by potential patients for the procedure. This job is somewhat ironic as she purportedly aborted a pregnancy when she was seventeen, nineteen years ago. Her stepfather urged her to go through with the pregnancy and give the baby up for adoption, he, now dead, the only person in her personal life who knew that she went through with it. She is approached by Nicky, an aspiring filmmaker, who has proof of her son's identity, said son who threw such information away in no longer wanting to contact her. As his application for a scholarship to the AFI, Nicky wants to make a film on Mamie "discovering" her son.

Being a great fan of Lisa Kudrow,(Miriam Mamie Toll) I greatly enjoyed her outstanding performance when she was getting a physical rub down in the most unconventional positions. Steve Coogan,(Charley Peppitone) gave plenty of sparks to his performance in a film that dealt with straight and gay guys and gals. This film starts off with a teenage girl and boy who are brother and sister-in-law having hot sex and starting a reaction that continues all the way into adulthood and more. There are many sub-plots that can confuse a person at times, however, the film is worth watching and it was nice to see Sarah Clarke, (Diane) "24" TV series who played a gay gal in this picture and is a very sexy gal and I hope to see her in more future films. There is comedy, but I really did not find myself breaking down with laughter, all the actors did an outstanding job. Enjoy
