Crush Kate (Andie McDowell) is headmistress of a girl's school in a small town: forty years old, successful, respectable, and on her own. Every Monday, she gets together with her other single friends, Molly and Janine, for the Sad Club, where they drink gin, eat chocolate and decide who is the saddest of the week.

Then Kate meets Jed, twenty-five years old and an ex-pupil. And spontaneously has sex with him. What can she tell her friends?

Every blow Kate's friends strike against them seems to drive Kate and Jed closer together; until finally, when the lovers announce their plan to marry, Molly is found by Kate in a compromising situation with Jed, and disaster strikes.
