Story Synopsis:
We catch up with Sex And The City columnist Carrie Bradshaw (Parker) a few years after we left her and her bed-hopping friends in the popular HBO series. Carrie has just found the penthouse apartment of her dreams with Mr. Big (Noth), Miranda (Nixon) is settling into family life in Brooklyn, Samantha (Cattrall) is in L.A. with her movie star boy-toy Smith Jerrod (Lewis), and Charlotte (Davis) is living her dream of being a mom to her adopted daughter.
