About this show

In a rundown apartment in a St. Louis ghetto, erstwhile Southern belle Amanda Wingfield, her painfully shy daughter, Laura, and her aspiring poet son, Tom, form a triangle of quiet desperation. Amanda, an overbearing single mother, lives on memories of her flower-scented youth, while her children bear the weight of her unrealistic dreams for their future. But when a gentleman caller offers false hope to the family, their precarious world shatters with haunting results.
