The Butler family has had its share of trials - as sisters Althea, Viola, and Lillian can attest - but nothing prepared them for a literal trial. Althea, the eldest sister and acting matriarch, is a force to be reckoned with, and her younger sisters have both appreciated and chafed at her strong will. They - and the community - are stunned when Althea and her husband, Proctor, are arrested, disgracing the once highly respected family. As Althea awaits her fate, Lillian and Viola must come together to care for their sister's teenage daughters.
