The members of the Frankel family are grappling with the loss of their only son and brother to three girls. The parents are on the verge of a divorce and gather the family for a memorial service a year after the death of the journalist son during the Iraq War. Clarissa, Lily, and Noelle come to support the parents and widow of Leo, Thisbe, with Thisbe's and Leo's son and the 3 sons of Noelle. Heartrending scenarios of the past make the story real and sorrowful. Each family has its challenges to maintain relationships making for an interesting story of family drama.
