Dans la banlieue de Londres, au début des années vingt, Virginia Woolf lutte contre la folie qui la guette. Elle entame l'écriture de son grand roman, Mrs Dalloway. Plus de vingt ans après, à Los Angeles, Laura Brown lit cet ouvrage : une expérience si forte qu'elle songe à changer radicalement de vie. A New York, aujourd'hui, Clarissa Vaughn, version moderne de Mrs Dalloway, soutient Richard, un ami poète atteint du sida. Comment ces histoires vont-elles se rejoindre, comment ces trois femmes vont-elles former une seule et même chaîne ? La littérature est si puissante qu'un chef-d'oeuvre peut, par-delà les époques, modifier irrévocablement l'existence de celles qui le côtoient

Barbara finds herself reaching out to Sheba. Sheba responds by inviting her to dinner at her house to meet Sheba's lecturer husband and their two children. Later, when Barbara discovers that Sheba is having a sexual relationship with a 15-year old student, Barbara realizes that knowledge of this secret gives her power over Sheba which she can use for her own purposes. Sheba becomes uneasy with Barbara's friendship. The tenuous relationship between the two women reaches a crisis point when Barbara's cat is dying and she asks Sheba to go with her to the vet. Sheba chooses to go with her family to see their son in a play instead. In revenge, Barbara sets in motion the scandal that will rock both their lives in ways they never imagined
