Estranged sisters Amy and Shannon return to their hometown in upstate New York to care for their dying grandmother. After not speaking for three years, and knowing little about each other's current lives, they come face-to-face with lingering childhood resentments, all the while trying to put aside the past to come together for Nana. With the kind of comedy that only sibling rivalry can generate, the failed actress and bored librarian sisters come across old flames, over-zealous pastors and overdue DVDs, as they work to heal their relationship with each other and the town they grew up in (Woodstock, that is!). — Monique Ray
