Susannah is a journalist who considers herself something of a war correspondent from the front lines of domestic distress. Teddy, an ex-lover, is an artist and a protester on behalf of causes of peace - and the man Susannah chooses to father the child she wants. That turns out to be Lizzie, now 13 and a sort of wise child, who's beginning to figure out her own ideas and desires. As all three experience changes in circumstance and direction, they learn - and demonstrate - that headlines about family news often have surprising endings.
