Phyllis is a successful doctor who is passionately dedicated to her work. She has worked hard to achieve professional recognition in her field and doesn’t regret one moment it. Being a successful doctor doesn’t leave Phyl much time for a social life, though… and sometimes the loneliness is more than she can bear. Sure, she meets women… women like herself… and she enjoys the pleasures only they can provide. Phyl is painfully aware that something is missing… that her brief encounters, as passionate as they are, will never truly fulfill her. Then, she meets Eve… and begins to wonder whether she has finally found a love that counts. Eve had been married, but has never known pleasure with a man as she experiences with Phyl. As their relationship develops and evolves, both women realize their lives will never be the same.
