Family is enough to drive anyone a little crazy. Children keep secrets from their parents so they won’t upset them, dads leave for other women, and moms try to run over dads with the car. Actually, that was the point when the Crumb family knew that Mom was crazy.
Estranged brothers Mitch and Jody Crumb reunite in their small hometown to deal with their mother, Suzanne, who is being discharged from a psychiatric facility and has yet to discover that her ex-husband is about to have a baby with his new girlfriend. They have issues… major issues.
Central to everything is the dynamic between these two brothers: Mitch is the prodigal son, who is returning home after a failed Hollywood career, while Jody is the older brother who has stayed in the confines of their small New England town to run the family business. Together for the first time as adults, this family will have to stick by one another despite their combustible relationships.

along comes a friend who offers a hand in sharing,
and things start looking fine.
Sometimes tears and sorrow are all the things you’ve got
and just when you think you’re all by yourself, you’re not.
