Five years after Hurricane Camille wiped out the gulf coast of Mississippi, the three MaGrath sisters are reunited at their grandparent’s home. The youngest sister, Babe Botrelle has just shot her big-wig politico husband in the stomach and is facing a trial and possible imprisonment. Meg, the head-strong, hard-loving middle sister has come home from her failed Hollywood singing career to support Babe. Before she left for Hollywood, she left a string of broken -hearted men and the town has not forgiven her. The oldest sister, Lenny stayed home to care for their ailing grandparents and has never experienced love because she is a martyr to her shrunken ovaries. Hovering above all of them is the spirit of their dead mother who hung herself in the basement and for a dash of drama, strung up her cat as well. That sensational act made national news and the three sisters are still living down the scandal. In the end, the story is about how its young characters escape their tragic past to seize the future.
