When high-flying 40-something stockbroker Stella (Bassett) and her rebellious friend Delilah (Goldberg) take a lavish trip to Jamaica, an unlikely suitor, in the form of dashing young islander Winston Shakespeare (Diggs), sweeps Stella off her feet. Pleasure and panic prevail as Stella reconciles her impeccably structured corporate lifestyle and motherhood, with her passionate desire for her free-spirited, younger lover.
