“The story of a theatrical family coming to terms with the roles that they play in each other’s lives. Anna has gathered the family together at their country house in the Berkshires on the one-year anniversary of the death of her daughter. Restless egos and simmering jealousies derail the weekend, and what was to be a time for reminiscence, suddenly turns into something much greater.”
