Description

Shocked and grieving after the suicide of her father, Jessa steps up to manage the failing family business, while the rest of the Morton family falls apart. Her mother decides to process her feelings by making aggressively lewd and increasingly disturbing art pieces with her dead husband’s taxidermied animals. Her brother withdraws and struggles to cope. His wife – who is also the only person Jessa has ever been in love with – walks out without a word. Meanwhile, numb with lack of sleep and too much alcohol, Jessa starts to seek less-than-legal ways of generating income to keep the shop afloat. The Mortons have reached tipping point. But for the first time, Jessa has no choice but to learn who these people she calls family truly are and, ultimately, how she fits alongside them.
