As Ben Lyons lies dying, his wife of forty years, Rita, flips through decorating magazines, planning a living room make-over. Ben and Rita have been at war for many years, and when they're joined by their children, Lisa and Curtis, all efforts at a pleasant visit or a sentimental goodbye to the dying patriarch are soon abandoned. Terrible secrets and vicious accusations replace sentimental memories. Can the family take the first tentative steps toward new human connection?
