A young woman turns 30 and basically loses her mind, trying to hold on to her "last chance" at love before going "over the hill." The problem is that she sets her sights on an old boyfriend who is newly married, and his wife
is a friend of hers. From one decision to the next, her biological clock and better judgment are constantly embattled.
Regardless of knowing better, she finds herself willing to do, on the other side of 30, whatever she thinks it takes to get what she thinks she wants: A ring, a husband, a family, and such things that are suddenly so appealing about the "normal life" that she once rejected, but now she believes is passing her by.
I think I can rattle off that bit in a minute or less. I think.
As for substance, I also tried to toss in a few messages about how easily some people, even those who seem the strong, smart types, can become completely unfocused and lose sight of their own self worth to social pressures, real and perceived. I mean, let's face it. Perception is reality. Mix that in with a little bit of the "grass is not always greener" angle, and the "people in glass houses shouldn't throw stones" philosophy, and that just about does it. I just hope the delivery isn't too heavy-handed, but we'll see.
And of course, there are a few sex scenes sprinkled in for good measure, to help move the story along.
What I need is a good tag line. "Trying to make a future out of her past will make a mess of her present," is fitting, but it doesn't pop! And it doesn't speak to the whole biological clock/social pressures thing. And I repeat the word, "make," so it still needs work. Hmmm.
