In a department store, 4 diverse women meet by chance with nothing in common but a black lace bra at a lingerie sale. One is a successful professional, one is an Iowa housewife, one is an Earth-mother type, and one is a soap star. As the women get to know each other, they bond over their shared experiences of menopause: hot flashes, night sweats, mood swings, forgetfulness, wrinkles, and chocolate feasts. The more they discuss, the more they come to affirm that menopause is no longer a taboo issue, but a normal part of life that should be freely discussed.
