For 40 years, Big Mama Joe's Soul Food Sunday dinners are what kept her family strong and united. Yet when Big Mama (Irma P. Hall) suffers a debilitating stroke and enters into a coma, the cracks in the family start to show and grow deeper with the rivalry between the three sisters: Teri (Vanessa L. Williams), the wealthy corporate lawyer who thinks that everyone is using her financially, Maxine (Vivica A. Fox), the housewife and mother of Ahmad who married Teri's ex-boyfriend (Jeffrey D. Sams), and youngest sister Bird (Nia Long), who just wed ex-con Lem (Mekhi Phifer). With Big Mama away and while watching the family crumbling, 11 year-old Ahmad (Brandon Hammond) will do his best to bring the family back again to the Sunday soul food dinners, and hopefully back to each other too...
