Synopsis

Georgia Benfield (Tuesday Weld) is at a difficult place in her life; her husband, Pete (Peter Bonerz) has left her for a younger woman, her teenage son, Chris (River Phoenix) is unmanageable, and she's struggling financially when her widowed mother, Charlotte (Geraldine Fitzgerald) moves in. Amid juggling a new full-time job, raising two children, and her failing marriage, the constant bickering between mother and daughter continues as it has ever since Georgia was a child. Finally, at her wit's end, Georgia loses control and begins physically abusing her elderly mother, just as Georgia had been abused herself as a child. As family and friends slowly begin to learn of the abuse, and long buried family secrets come to light, both mother and daughter must learn to accept the past, to change what is happening at present, in order to face a better future.
