Friends Doris, Lucille and Ester are in their mid-fifties and have become widows within the past few years, and they all live in the Jewish community in Pittsburgh (USA). Once a week they meet to visit their husbands graves and then at a deli to talk about their lives. Doris remains fiercely devoted to her late husband and takes her responsibilities as a widow seriously. Lucille is eager to get her feet back into the waters of dating, partly as a revenge against her late husband who often cheated on her, and partly because she is very lonely. Ester is also not used to being alone after thirty nine years of marriage, but she doesn't feel ready to start dating again, at least not until she meets Ben who gradually but firmly eases his way into her life. the result is a conflict of wants, needs, respect and some jealousy before each of them come to terms with their own situation, leading to a very poignant conclusion.
