American playwright Lillian Hellman recounts a story from the mid-1930s leading into WWII concerning her best childhood friend, the wealthy Julia, who was raised by her maternal grandparents. At the time of this story, Hellman is just starting her writing career, and is in a relationship with older novelist Dashiell Hammett who's also her mentor. Julia's a medical student, living in Vienna where she hoped to study under luminaries such as Sigmund Freud. Visits between Lily and Julia are infrequent due to the Nazis rising to power in Both Germany and Austria. Lily discovers that Julia has been hospitalised from beatings revived from the Nazis, due to her assisting her school colleagues. This action by Julia only strengthens her resolve towards activism against anything she sees as being socially or politically corrupt. Lily's career begins to blossom, albeit with its own obstacles. Afterwards, she's invited to attend a conference in Russia, but she plans on stopping in Vienna en route to see Julia if she is still there. In spite of her attempts to contract Julia, she not heard from herempts. Lillian learns through a friend of Julia's that she is making a request of her friend; Julia wants Lillian to smuggle $50,000 of Julia's money into Germany to help the resistance. Despite not seeing herself as a heroic-type, and despite the added personal risk of being Jewish in Nazi Germany, Lily agrees. En route, Lilian has to learn who she can and cannot trust, reading those cues incorrectly which could lead to her and Julia's demise. Lily will also learn of another request from her friend, one of a more personal nature, and as such perhaps more important to Lily to achieve.

Thirteen-year-olds prim and proper Bostonian Sharon McKendrick and tomboyish Californian Susan Evers meet at summer camp. It's hate at first sight, as besides the differing length of their hair, they look exactly the same. After the girls carry out one battle after another against each other, the camp administrators ultimately place the two in solitary confinement, the two eating, sleeping, and playing only with each other. It is during this confinement that they finally get a chance to know each other and learn that they are indeed twins, separated when they were babies when their parents, Maggie McKendrick and Mitch Evers, divorced. Wanting to get to know and ultimately love the parent they never met, Sharon and Susan decide to switch places, Sharon will go to California and pretend to be Susan, and Susan will go to Boston and pretend to be Sharon. The other thing they believe is that their parents still love each other, why else had neither ever remarried. The two parents would ultimately have to "un-switch" them, when the girls hope their parents will fall in love all over again. Sharon and Susan are initially able to carry off the ruse, but in California, their plan hits a snag when Mitch introduces his daughter to a young woman named Vicky Robinson, Vicky, who aspires to be the second Mrs. Mitchell Evers. Sharon and the domestics in the Evers household think Vicky is merely a gold digger out for Mitch's money. Sharon and Susan have to figure out a way to get rid of Vicky and bring Maggie to California more quickly than planned, so that their parents can reconcile, and the foursome can be one big happy family.
