The call is for four women who bond because of menopause symptoms. Period. (Or actually lack thereof). Their relationship develops like people on a long plane trip that share their life stories, and never see each other again once they have landed.
SOAP OPERA STAR (SS): 42 - 50, attractive, well preserved, and buxom. She is obviously passed the ingénue character that she has played in a popular soap opera. She is struggling to come to grips with aging unsuccessfully because it affects her livelihood as well as her life. She is the most shallow of the four but manipulative because of her celebrity. Her emotions run from fearful to frustrated. The evolution of her friendship with the others is the result of having to look beyond beauty, from what is skin deep to what is real.
PROFESSIONAL WOMAN (PW): 45 - 55, African American; she is in a position of power with an attitude, and has earned every dollar working twice as hard as her male counterparts; great legs under short skirts; a control freak, out of control with the big M and has little patience with the havoc it is reeking on her life. Her rise to the top of the heap (i.e. owning her own company) has left her with little relationship...to her daughter, her mother...even her race. She was never about Black Power, just power. And it has always been difficult for her to identify if it was fear of failure or fear of success that was the greater motivator. The frustration of dealing with the raging hormones is not only with the symptoms but in her inability to control them. This perceived failure allows other parts of being a woman to surface including accepting the knowledge that she is, in fact, not alone on her mountain.
EARTH MOTHER (EM): 48- 55, very healthy, vegetarian, survivor of the 60's drug era; she wears Birkenstocks and socks; herbalist, astrologist. She lives on a community farm in Connecticut with her “husband” who she met at Woodstock. She is roly poly. Of the four she has the least baggage...she is warmer, and the least judgmental. She is the Mother Earth character that one would expect the IH to be...as long as she has had sleep. She doesn’t get angry...only cranky. She drums. And is not self-conscious about who and what she is. She is the most playful. Unlike most women at this age what are put in the position of parenting their parents due to aging or ill health, she has been mothering her mother for the last several decades (and marriages). She loves and is lovable, both characteristics draw people to her.
IOWA HOUSEWIFE (IH): 44-48, not quite in shape; her clothes make her look frumpier than she really is i.e. no sense of style. She is in town with her husband who is on a convention and is trying to rekindle their romance on a second honeymoon...to no avail. She wears bifocals and carries her handbag under her arm constantly. IH had her children later in life so they are still at home. She has a naive wisdom; she prattles oblivious to that fact that no one is paying attention; she is the product of being a housewife and mother. Until her hormones started to surge, she got her power from being a wife and mother. She is discovering - but waffles as she is doing it - what her husband and kids have known all along. She has strength... and the ability to discern her own destiny.
