Every family has its shameful secrets, but none more so than those of the Lee family. Aramenta Lee escaped her controlling mother by moving to Paris thirty years ago. Her quiet life there is shattered by a terse wire: AM DYING – COME HOME – MOTHER.

Aramenta arrives in Mobile, Alabama just hours prior to her mother’s death. She wants nothing more than to quickly settle the estate and escape family ties, but finds herself thwarted by a macabre secret her mother has held for thirty years.
