What is the “real thing”?

What is “real” love, “real” art, “real” politics?

Henry is a playwright not so happily married to Charlotte. She’s the lead actress in his play about a marriage on the verge of collapse. When Henry’s affair with their friend Annie threatens to destroy his real marriage, he discovers that life has started imitating art. After Annie leaves her husband so she and Henry can begin a new life together, he can’t help but wonder whether their love is the real thing.
