Grace (Nastassja Kinski) feels smothered by her marriage. Her husband, Matt (Hart Bochner), is unemployed and drinks too much. Matt has also stopped paying attention to her sexually, which eventually sends Grace off to Miami Beach, Fla., to get away from it all. While there, she meets a man, Julian (William Baldwin), with whom she has a one-night stand. When Grace returns home, Matt has suddenly cleaned up his act and started working again. But then Julian reappears, and things get complicated.
