A university professor, Marion Post is experiencing a type of mid-life crisis so she rents an apartment in order to write a book. The apartment is next to a psychiatrist's office, and she inadvertantly hears what transpires between the doctor and some of her patients. She becomes obsessed with the life and on-going therapy of one woman in particular who believes that her marriage is ending. Through this patient, Marion begins to think about issues in her own life and the causes of her own unhappiness.
A college professor on sabbatical, while trying to work on her new book, eavesdrops on the conversation of her next door neighbor, a psychiatrist, and notices one of his patient's problems sound much like her own.

Film was inspired by Swedish director Ingmar Bergman's 1957 classic "Wild Strawberries." "Wild Strawberries" is similar in theme to "Another Woman" in that in the Swedish film, a man's reflections on his own unhappiness are prompted by an external event, in this case, his traveling to receive an honorary degree.
