Summary
Easy Kimbrough is the patriarch of the family and the local butcher. He is grieving over the recent loss of his wife, Ceci. He hides his secret ongoing affair. Beagle is his youngest son who was left to care for his ailing mother. He works in the local high school cafeteria by day but wants to paint street signs. Guy is the oldest son who has been away from the family for years while pursuing his rock star dreams. He learns of his mother's passing, but misses the funeral. When Guy returns home, the family begins to unravel. Beagle's pent up emotions connect with Georgia Kaminski, a terminally ill teenage girl wanting to experience love before it's too late. Easy's long time affair with Marg, Georgia's eccentric grandmother, is finally exposed to Beagle and Guy. Guy discovers that while he was gone, his high school sweetheart has started a family of her own. Through it all, the Kimbrough's and Kaminski's manage to establish a new beginning in the face of their greatest fears
