    In 1928, Minnie's mother, Nora, arrives at her nursing college after abandoning her a few years ago as a child. What does Nora want? An unexpected visit to Grandpa and Marie at the Big House offers Minnie shelter and refuge, but no longer the carefree days of her youthful experiences there. She discovers secrets. Shrewd and hidden manipulations of power ensure the survival of the Big House in this small Southern town, where a smile can mask suppressed rage and hostility.
