At her husband's funeral, Pearl, the Jewish mother of two divorced daughters, meets an Italian man who her husband confided in many years earlier, and whose advice changed the course of her life. At first she adamantly resists him, until her grief and family drive her out of her apartment. Although she is controlling and very set in her ways, through him she learns to reflect about what kind of mother she has actually been. He, too, is widowed and reveals that he had a faithful, but very unhappy marriage from the start. When her children and grandchildren notice the changes in her, they make changes in their own lives.
