When former members of the Weismann Follies reunite on the eve of their theater's demolition, two couples remember their past and face the harsher realities of the present. The shadows of their younger selves remind them of the complicated steps they've danced, both on the stage and throughout their lives.

Story

What Is the Story of Follies?
It is 1971 and the former stars of the Weissman Follies are reuniting on the stage of the now-decrepit theater that was once their professional home, the night before it is turned into a parking lot. Phyllis and Sally, who were best friends in their Follies days, have married Ben and Buddy, respectively. The once-close foursome has fallen out of touch. As these aging starlets reminisce, they end up hashing out old affairs, remembering who loved (and loves) whom, and reliving the roads they did and didn’t take.
