Having moved out of home decades ago, the two sisters, Jayne and Laura return home to Pittsburgh to care for their ailing father who has deteriorated in physical and mental capacities. While there they deal with a whole lot of issues, situations and unavoidable emotions- some comic, some sad and reflective. Honest moments involve the more responsible Laura forcing Jayne to see the reality of the world around her and not be as fragile. While some of the more eccentric moments involve their endearing father’s relationship with his nurse Shelly…
