Summary, etc.:
When three life-long friends--Esther, Doris and Lucille--suddenly find themselves middle-aged widows, they discover the transition from mating to dating is a tricky proposition at best, and that starting over takes more effort the second time around. Although this trio of newly-eligible ladies is an added attraction on the over-50 singles circuit, they quickly find that the harvest years have produced a fallow field of suitable single men. But, among the prunes a ripened plum appears, and a charming widower named Ben begins to take an interest in Esther. As Esther's romance kindles, she finds herself and her two friends facing yet another turning point in their lives. But at the crossroads, they realize that life goes on for the young at heart.
