This "sibling comedic drama" revolves around three estranged sisters whose resentment and envy of one another is barely dented by the news that their father (Ray Wise) is terminally ill. The three sisters are: Claire (Shannon Woodward) who is dumped by her boyfriend on her birthday; Sharon (Wendi McLendon-Covey), the oldest and seemingly most settled; and Kendra (India Menuez), the youngest and emotional one.
Sherman has said that the city of Los Angeles will be a major focus of the film, stating that the city's distinct neighborhood will characterize the sisters' differences. She stated: "Los Angeles will illustrate those divisions in a comedic way".
