For too long, Carrie Bradshaw (Sarah Jessica Parker) has been looking for love in all the wrong places... but in all the right shoes.
Carrie, Samantha Jones (Kim Cattrall), Charlotte York Goldenblatt (Kristin Davis) and Miranda Hobbes (Cynthia Nixon) are back, four years after the hit TV series ended.
As they continue to juggle career, relationships, motherhood and life in Manhattan, the girls realise that more than ever, true friendship never goes out of style.
Carrie and her Mr. Big (Chris Noth) are talking about buying an apartment and moving in together; publicist Samantha is living in Los Angeles with her toyboy lover but yearns for her sexual independence; lawyer Miranda is trying to come to terms with the fact that her husband cheated on her; and sweet Charlotte, although happily married with an adopted daughter, is trying to fall pregnant.
A break-up sees them all in Mexico together, where they have to deal with heartache, hangovers and incontinence. Fortunately, friendship and fashion sees them through.
