Cary Scott is a well-to-do widow gradually re-entering a social life amongst her mostly dull country club peers. Her only apparent enjoyment in life comes from weekend visits from her college-age children. Cary then meets a handsome younger man, Ron, who owns a small landscaping business. A follower of Henry David Thoreau's Walden, Ron enjoys a life focused on nature and is deliberately uninterested in the gossipy opinions of others. Their romance causes clashes and tensions between Cary, her children, and the country club.
