Amalie Price has been coasting along in New York as a sheltered faculty wife who secretly freelances as a French porno translator, when she suddenly finds herself a widow at 40. Left with no financial resources by her activist husband, she must contend with her newly alienated teenage son, the threat of eviction from her Upper West Side apartment, and the need to earn a living.
