When a younger man named Hartley encounters an older woman named Diane dancing with her dog on a lonely, out-of-season beach in North Carolina, he ends up unexpectedly spending the evening with her. She's a shape-shifting cougar with a problematic pet, but she also has a poignant and disturbing story to tell about an abortion at age 17, and how that event profoundly impacted her subsequent life. When Hartley inadvertently asks a question that opens Diane's floodgates, he finds he has no easy way out of a exquisitely uncomfortable situation. A bachelor who lives with a cat in Manhattan, empathy isn't Hartley's strongest suit and he has no prior experience dealing with what Diane has been through. Thanks in part to a photo that helps him understand more about what Diane lost, he listens with increasing interest to her gritty account of how she clawed her way upward only to have her past rob her of her greatest success. Diane greatly appreciates Hartley's willingness to listen and she's intrigued that he might be able to make good use of her story while at the same time finding him lacking in certain important respects. Can the evening result in a rewarding outcome for them both -- and that pesky dog?
