The lives of 25-year-old Jean Jones and her multi-generational, middle-class Jamaican-American family of strong-minded, stubborn yet loving women, come to an arresting stop when an estranged grandfather dies on the doorstep of the family’s brownstone during a Sunday dinner. Tensions rise and old conflicts come to a boil as Jean uncovers the family’s buried secrets. The Jones women face their divorces, infidelities, and past transgressions, while Jean faces the tough truths of her failing career and her crippling ability to move on from a past relationship to the love staring her right in the face.
