Summary:

Beatrice, the mother of the four Reed sisters – Alex, Teddy, Georgie and Frankie – must consider selling the family home, a step which she’s totally unprepared for, and one which affects her excessive attraction to alcohol. Georgie must deal with her unemployed husband who spends all his time in his bathrobe, perfecting his lounge act. Teddy, who left town three years ago after a failed marriage to Mitch, is back to reclaim what’s hers. She’s surprised to find out that her baby sister, Frankie, now has him. The four women put their own problems aside, however, when their mother, is involved in a car accident. Together they join forces to help their mother accept the loss of her husband and deal with her alcoholism.
