"How did all this happen?" Gloria constantly asks herself. After many years of considering herself simply a wife and mother who works as a secretary, she finds herself on her own and plunges into a demanding and unfamiliar business world. While still coming to grips with the sudden changes in her own life she is drawn into the very complicated personal problems of her new acquaintances. Each day she seems to meet a new incident or crisis. She sometimes wonders what happened to her old life and where this new life is taking her. Then, totally against her better judgement, she becomes more and more attracted to a man much younger than herself, which adds to her confusion.
