The setting is the small town of Independence, Iowa, the lifelong home of Evelyn Briggs. Her oldest daughter, Kess, has come back home at the request of her pregnant sister, Jo, who is concerned for Eveyln's mental health. Kess wants to cut her family ties once and for all. Meanwhile, their other sister Sherry, salty-tongued and amoral, wants only to finish high school and get out of town. In the end, there is no accommodation possible, but, instead, only a kind of arbitrary independence for each of the protagonists, as they realize that each must find her own heaven -- or hell -- in her own way. "A delicate balance of comic and tragic elements."
