Welcome to the middle of the turbulent 1960s. Kennedy's been dead for two years, while the Summer of Love lies three years in the future. Five young women come to Washington to share a townhouse while they chase their dreams in the offices across the Potomac. Some want to find a husband, just as their mothers did. Others pray that there's something more to life besides being a housewife. What they find, on the eve of the sexual revolution and at the death of the staid '50s, will shatter their lives and destroy the last of their innocence.
