An ambitious female attorney wallows in excess and meaningless sex with both male and female partners, while dealing with her personal life problems including helping her kleptomaniac sister.
Eve Stephens is a high-powered prosecutor who is about to reach a professional peak with her imminent appointment to the bench. Though Eve appears to have an exemplary life–perfect job, perfect lover, perfect car, perfect home–beneath her exquisitely groomed surface is a woman plagued by doubt and neurosis. When Eve’s self-destructive sister Maddy is arrested for shoplifting, Eve must leave her seemingly secure power-base in Los Angeles and venture into the desert to sort out Maddy’s legal affairs. Confronting Maddy and her eclectic friends, Eve discovers that she is not alone in her struggle to reconcile who she is with what others expect her to be.
