    Lucy Barton har svært ved at genvinde kræfterne efter en blindtarmsoperation. Hendes mor, som hun ikke har talt med i næsten tyve år, kommer og besøger hende på hospitalet på Manhattan. Småsladder om familie og bekendte fra den lille by i Illinois, hvor Lucy er vokset op, bringer dem lidt tættere på hinanden, men lige under overfladen syder de konflikter og længsler, der har formet hele Lucys tilværelse: hendes flugt fra en plaget opvækst, drømmen om at blive forfatter, hendes ægteskab, kærligheden til de to døtre.
