Jo and Bethie Kaufman were born into a world full of promise. Growing up in 1950s Detroit, their roles are clearly defined. Jo is the tomboy, the bookish rebel with passion to make the world more fair; Bethie is the pretty, feminine good girl, a would-be star who enjoys the power her beauty confers and dreams of a traditional life. But the future ends up looking far from what the girls imagined. As their lives unfold against the background of free love and Vietnam, Woodstock and women's lib, Bethie becomes an adventure-loving wild child who dives headlong into the counterculture while Jo becomes a proper young mother in Connecticut, a witness to the changing world instead of a participant. Neither woman inhabits the world she dreams of, or has a life that brings her joy. Is it too late for them to finally stake a claim on happily ever after?
