Soon Catherine is teaching a summer symposium on feminism and media to Gwen, her mother Alice, and college student Avery. Sexual tension and shifting alliances develop.

Mother to Catherine, recently had a heart attack but is up on her feet. Traditional values but admires her feminist daughter and is supportive of her.

Don is a dean at a liberal arts college in New England, and was a brilliant and charismatic grad student there many years ago. Now he's married with two kids, and lacks ambition, and his good looks have faded a bit. He drinks too much, smokes too much pot, and has his share of regret.
