When a woman decides that she needs to "find herself," typical of the sixties, she walks out on her marriage of sixteen years. The pain and suffering she deals her family is nothing compared to what she does to herself in this soul-searching bout, but the movie does not really give any definitive answers or come to any satisfactory conclusions regarding her search. The most memorable addition this movie made to the film world was through its music. Michel LeGrand's theme song for this movie, "What Are You Doing with the Rest of Your Life?" became a huge hit.
