Five New Yorkers must make decisions overnight that will affect their futures.
Based on Amy Fox's play, the film is set in the theater community of New York City, as diva Diana Lee (Close) prepares to portray Lady Macbeth on Broadway. She wants to cast Alec (Bradford) in a play she's directing, but a secret is preventing him from jumping at the chance to graduate from off-off-Broadway fringe roles. Meanwhile, Lee's daughter, Isabel (Banks), is getting ready to marry Jonathan (Marsden), a young executive with a secret of his own. And Lee is unhappy that her husband (Phil Tabor) has chosen her understudy (Susan Malick) for his latest dalliance. All comes to a head as Peter (John Light), who has been hired by Vanity Fair to look into a famous photographer's sexual past, uncovers some surprising revelations.
