At the end of the day, the Banks sisters are no different from any other family in the city of Richmond - other than the fact that they are rotten to the core. Sure, the girls are bonded by DNA, but they're also tied together because of their past of robbing banks, extortion, drug dealing, and even cold-blooded murder. However, that bond means absolutely nothing to them.

Their only common denominator is their loving grandmother, Me-Ma. When she's not at work trying to make ends meet, she's home with her girls, trying to keep them from killing each other.
