Plot Of The Movie
This movie follows four women who are not able to find the right men for themselves. One of them is divorced but wants to live with her ex-husband’s mistress; two are just additional women in a man’s life, which means that they have wives and don’t give much importance to these women.
These four women, Savannah, Robin, Bernadine, and Gloria, have to find the right partner who can treat them with respect. Out of the four, Savannah is a successful television producer who has a lover and is married. She is of the blind belief that the man will eventually leave his wife to settle down with Savannah.
When she realizes that it’s just a delusion of hers, she has to look for a new man who can take care of her better. Bernadine Harris (also called Bernie) is another woman who has left her dream of starting a catering business to take care of her family while her husband was working. Now her husband suddenly announces that he wants to leave Bernie for another woman he works with.
She needs to navigate around this problem and find a way to overcome it. Next is Robin Stokes, a mistress of Russel who is also married. She eventually dumps him on a mission to find the right suit. The last of the four women is Gloria Matthews (also known as Glo), a single parent whose husband has left her after announcing that he is gay. Later she falls in love with a neighbor.
