Martha, Ruth and Edie -- Film Description:
"Three women—Martha, Ruth and Edie—ejected from a 'Woman Fulfilled' seminar led by 'the man who understands what it is to be a woman' (he's a power-tripping jerk) meet in the lobby of the seminar auditorium and swap the stories they came to the seminar to tell. They are no ordinary stories: they have been adapted by three separate screenwriters from exceptional tales by Alice Munro (How I Met My Husband), Betty Lambert (Guilt) and Cynthia Flood (California Aunts)."
