This tells the woven tale of three women who are in different places in their lives but must come together to figure everything out. Liz has given up on her cheating husband of 20 years and her boring job. On her birthday, she throws everything she knows out the window and trades it in for a kayak. Her seemingly neglectful, overly sexualized mother Claudette is going through the motions of grief as her longtime partner has died in a moment of passion.
The apple does not fall from the tree and these three: Mother Elizabeth (fed up and pissed off), Grandmother Claudette (self-absorbed and sexually needy), and daughter Darcy (sharp-edged and not nearly as mixed up as her family believes) are more alike than they’ll admit to you, to me, or to themselves.
