In this dark comedy, four sisters who are as different as the cities they're named after are reunited after the death of their mother, only to find out that the circumstances of her death are not what they seem and may be intolerable. Old wounds are reopened and the sisters reach a crisis point as they must decide if they can stand together, knowing that the alternative is to fall apart completely.

Did she commit murder? Or did her parents end themselves?
