Kym (Anne Hathaway) is released from drug rehab for a few days so she can go home to attend the wedding of her sister Rachel (Rosemarie DeWitt). At home, the atmosphere is strained between Kym and her family members as they struggle to reconcile themselves with her past and present. Kym's father (Bill Irwin) shows intense concern for her well-being and whereabouts, which Kym interprets as mistrust. She also resents her sister's choice of her best friend Emma (Anisa George), rather than Kym, to be her maid of honor. Rachel, for her part, resents the attention her sister's drug addiction is drawing away from her wedding, a resentment that comes to a head at the rehearsal dinner, where Kym, amid toasts from friends and family, takes the microphone to offer an apology for her past actions, as part of her twelve-step program.

Mai 1968. Catherine, Yves et Hervé sont tous les trois étudiants à la Sorbonne. Ils ont 20 ans et forment un trio amoureux. Les révoltes de mai vont radicalement changer leur vie. Catherine se fait avorter clandestinement et manque de mourir. Dans l’élan des émeutes, les trois amis décident avec des camarades de partir s’installer dans le Lot, près de Figeac, pour fonder une communauté. Au début, ils vivent « d’amour et d’eau fraîche » mais sont vite rappelés à la réalité par le manque d’argent et la dureté du travail à la ferme. La volonté de s’accomplir individuellement les sépare. Catherine se retrouve seule avec ses deux enfants, Ludmilla et Boris, car même Yves, leur père, est retourné à Paris. Elle résiste, aidée par Maryse, une voisine qui a un fils, Christophe, du même âge que sa fille. Le film énumère les aventures de la communauté jusqu'à nos jours, au travers des faits socialement marquants des différentes périodes, avec par exemple 1989 et la chute du mur de Berlin. Cette année-là, les enfants quittent la ferme : Ludmilla épouse Farivar, un Iranien ; Boris et Christophe, homosexuels, vivent ensemble. Mais arrive le sida et le scandale du sang contaminé. Boris s'engage dans le combat des sans papiers de l'église Saint-Bernard et rencontre Vincent, un volontaire chez Aides avec qui il rêve de mariage et d’adoption. Quant à Catherine, elle ne veut toujours pas quitter le Lot et renoncer à ses idéaux des années 1970.

Victorian adventurer and sexologist Sir Richard Francis Burton (John Robinson), following an "unfortunate encounter" with the Fountain of Youth in 1892, is 170 years old and living in Toronto, Canada. Burton, now living and working as the chief taxidermist at a Museum of Natural History, is searching for a centerpiece display for an exhibit in his Hall of Contagion. He comes up with the idea of featuring AIDS and the Patient Zero hypothesis. Accepting the popular belief that Zero introduced the virus to North America, Burton sets out to collect video footage from those who knew Zero to support the hypothesis. When Zero's doctor (Brenda Kamino), mother (Charlotte Boisjoli) and former airline colleague Mary (Dianne Heatherington), who is now with ACT UP, all refuse to demonize Zero, Burton manipulates the footage to make it appear as if they do and includes doctored photographs of Zero showing signs of Kaposi's sarcoma. He presents this preliminary version to the press.
