As she starts to navigate life as a single woman in her 40s, Abby turns to her new divorced friends including Lyla (Janeane Garofalo, "Reality Bites") and Phoebe (Beau Garrett, "Criminal Minds: Suspect Behavior") for advice. Meanwhile, a rival attorney at Lyla's firm, Delia is hired as Abby's divorce attorney.
