Synopsis

When her husband dies, May is alone and needs her family. Although her sons live far away, all three of her sisters live in the same town and agree to gather at May's home once a month for Sunday dinner. Everyone brings something to the table, from green bean casserole to potato salad, from self-righteousness to deep grief. Outspoken Kendra has a stable marriage to John. A somewhat melancholy Vickery married Greg when she was older. Devil-may-care Justine has been married several times and is planning to take the plunge again. Friction develops as the sisters discuss their personal lives, and May explodes with angry sadness about how neglectful her sisters have been to her. Several months later, they gather for their second Sunday dinner. Justine did not get married, May is coping better with her loss, and Kendra is still busy with her life. Vickery faces a turning point in her life. Violet, May's neighbor with whom she has become close friends, has also recently lost her husband, and she joins them for dessert. The dinner table conversation becomes more heated when Justine decides to push back after enduring Kendra's incessant judgments. Reproach, loneliness and bitterness surface, culminating in one of those memorable family arguments that changes the course of personalities and relationships.
