Thirty-four-year-old, twice divorced, Klarke Taylor finds herself with two children and mediocre means of support. According to Klarke, it's a man's world, those men being Ben, Andrew, Abe and all the others who make it go round. Klarke is weary of not having the means to provide and live a cozy lifestyle. She's fed up with not being able to achieve simple self-deserving harmony. Klarke eases her burdens with Saturday morning window-shopping outings of which she is accompanied by her two coequal lady friends. They each find that this ritual is nothing more than part-time bliss and will no longer suffice their covetous appetites. Klarke and her confidants resort to devising shady methods to appease their ambitions.
