Content descriptions

Summary, etc.:
On a summer evening in the blue-collar town of Amicus, Kansas, the Campbell family gathers for abirthday dinner for their ailing patriarch, retired judge Abel Campbell, prepared and hosted by their still-hale mother, HAttie. But when Billy, the youngest sibling - with a history of addiction, grand ideas, and misdemeanors - passes out in his devil's food cake, the family takes up the unfinished business of Billy's sobriety. Billy's wayward adventures have too long consumed their lives, in particular Hattie's, who has enabled his trangressions while trying to save him from Abel's disappointment. As the older children - Doro, Jesse, ClairBell, and Gideon - contend with their own troubles, they compete for the approval of the elderly parents they adore but can't quite forgive.
