Plot – Ruth Patchett is a forty-year-old inept and portly housewife who leads a dull life in a New York suburb. She's married to Bob, an ambitious accountant, and she's the mother of Andy and Nicolette. At a reception, Ruth clumsily spills her cocktail on Mary Fisher's dress, a charming woman. Bob drives Mary home and the two spend the night together. As Ruth learns about the betrayal, she enacts diabolical initiatives setting fire to her house and bringing her children at Fisher's. Then Ruth is hired as assistant in a nursing home but she changes the therapeutic methods of the patient, until she abandons the clinic along with Hooper, a dwarf nurse. Always full of fertile ideas, Ruth opens with her new friend a start-up office for alone and repressed women and she gains a lot of success.
