Joan finds her daughter, Esther, swimming in alcohol and existing in darkness amongst a sea of newly delivered flower arrangements and half-eaten casseroles offered up by friends as condolences for the recent passing of her wife, Beck. Mirrors have been removed from walls, air conditioning vents have been covered over, and the wreckage of broken vases litter the floor. Desperately searching for answers from a combative, despondent, and newly widowed Esther, Joan begins to unravel truths unimaginable.
