Joan Mitchell is the 39-year-old wife of a businessman, Jack Mitchell. They live in suburban Pittsburgh with their 19-year-old daughter Nikki, a college student. Joan is attractive for her age, but unhappy and discontented with her housewife role. Jack is successful, but busy, domineering, and occasionally violent, embarking on long business trips every week. Joan has been seeing a psychotherapist because of her recurring dreams about her husband controlling her. He makes repeated references to needing to “kick some ass”—a colleague’s, his own child’s, his wife’s. Eventually, he strikes Joan in the face.

Joan and her friends learn about a new woman in the neighborhood named Marion Hamilton who is rumored to practice witchcraft. Prompted by curiosity, Joan and one of her friends, Shirley, drive over to Marion’s house one night for a Tarot reading. It turns out that Marion is the leader of a local secret witches’ coven. Joan and Shirley drive home to Joan’s house, where they meet Gregg, a student teacher at Nikki’s college (with whom Nikki has a very casual sexual relationship). The four drink and talk. Gregg shows an interest in Joan, who rebuffs him. Joan throws Gregg out of her house after he cruelly tricks Shirley into believing that she has smoked pot.
