Straight-laced Professor Vivian Bell (Helen Shaver) arrives in 1950's Reno, Nevada, to obtain a 'quickie' divorce from her estranged husband, but during her enforced pre-decree residency at a remote western ranch, she finds herself increasingly drawn to her host's open and self-assured daughter, (Patricia Charbonneau), which leads her to question her own sexuality. A sensitive subject, sensitively handled.
