When Peggy, a good Christian woman, dies tripping over the detached wooden legs of her best friend's husband, with whom she was having an affair, three generations of her outlandish family and assorted peculiar friends are brought together to mourn. Peggy's sister Sissy, is left to manage the many skeletons in the family closet. She must mediate between Peggy’s daughters, the uptight Latrelle and more liberal LaVonda, as well as trying to comfort her neighbor, Noleta whose husband, G.W., was Peggy's lover. She must also arrange for her nephew, Brother Boy, to be released from the insane asylum where he has been locked up for twenty three years after his best friend Wardell found out that he was gay and assaulted him, and clear the way for Latrelle's son Ty, who is an actor and is also gay, but has yet to come out to his mother.
