Spinsterhood was once regarded as being a sign of failure, and spinsters were relegated to a life on the margins of society. But in the 21st century they exist in record numbers. Tina Mo, who has just turned 40, is the envy of her married friends, while wedding-dress designer Elaine baffles clients with her happy singleton existence at the age of 57. This film asks if spinsterhood is the new "happy ever after"?
