When fifteen-year-old Olivia Jean discovers that she is pregnant, her parents flee their New York home and bring her to her grandmother Birdie’s Alabama farm. They plan on leaving her there for the duration of her pregnancy, but Birdie insists that Olivia Jean can stay only if her mother, Daisy, stays as well.

Though she and her mother have been estranged for years, Daisy sees no alternative but to send her beloved, though unfaithful husband back north and settle in to life “down South” with her mother and daughter. Now that these three generations of proud, spirited women are together under one roof, Birdie, Daisy, and Olivia Jean must make sense of their roles as mothers — and find a place in their lives for love, independence and each other.
