Gloria Bell is a middle-aged divorcee living in Los Angeles, California. She has two children from her previous marriage: Anne, a kindhearted yoga instructor, and Peter, an uninspired married man who takes care of his infant daughter while his wife is away. Gloria spends her nights on the dance floor, joyfully letting loose at clubs around the city. One night, she meets Arnold, a divorcee like herself, and the two hit it off. They sleep together and begin a relationship not long after. However, Gloria is annoyed after Arnold reveals that he still financially supports his ex-wife and two daughters, the latter of which are unemployed and make incessant demands of him. Arnold owns a paintball arena, and introduces Gloria to the sport. Gloria introduces Arnold to her family at Peter's birthday party, consisting of her two children and her ex-husband, Dustin. During a toast, Gloria unwittingly reveals that Anne is pregnant; Anne begrudgingly explains that the father is a wave rider from Sweden and she plans to move there to be with him. As the family looks at old photos, including ones from Gloria's and Dustin's wedding, Arnold feels unwelcome and removes himself, silently leaving after he receives another call from his daughters. When Gloria realizes that he has left, the whole family looks for him in a panic before giving up. Gloria leaves embarrassed. Arnold repeatedly calls her, and finally catches up with her in a parking garage as she is leaving work. He attempts to justify his unannounced exit from the party, but when he again mentions his daughters' calls, she tells him to grow a pair. She offers him his paintball guns back but he continues to ignore her. She throws the guns back in her car and drives away. Gloria's crazy neighbor leaves his marijuana at her doorstep one night, and, in a free-spirited high, she smokes it and goes out dancing again. The next day, she drives Anne to the airport for the latter's trip to Sweden, and tearfully accepts that her daughter is grown up. Soon after, Gloria is informed at the doctor's office that she will have to take prescription eyedrops for the rest of her life as a result of her failing eyesight.
