A portrait of three women living subtly interlocking lives in rural Montana, striving to forge their own paths. Laura, a lawyer living and working in Livingston, struggles to handle an increasingly difficult and unpredictable client who refuses to accept that his personal injury claim will not be successful. Gina's determination to build her dream home outside of town puts her at odds with her husband, daughter and neighbours as her relentless drive causes tension in their shared lives. And, in the remote town of Belfry, a lonely ranch hand working a winter job stumbles upon a night class taught by a young law graduate with whom she develops an ambiguous bond.
