Meg just left one. Lenny never had one. Babe just shot one. The Magrath sisters sure have a way with men!

Three sisters with quite different personalities and lives reunite when Babe, the youngest, has just shot her husband. Oldest sister Lenny takes care of their grandfather and is turning into an old maid. Meg, who aspires to make it in Hollywood as a singer and actress, has had a wild, man-filled life. Their reunion is joyful but also stirs up much tension as each sister is forced to face the consequences of the "crimes of the heart" she has committed.
