Mary Frances has lived a good life; she's ninety years old and ready to die. Born to refugees fleeing the Armenian genocide, her last wish is to die peacefully at home surrounded by her family. Her dream collides with reality as three generations of explosive women flood her small New England home to battle for their family’s legacy. Mary Frances is a tenacious survivor, struggling to break the bonds that tie her to this life. She must navigate the volatile relationships of the children she raised -- or die trying.
