Now a high school English teacher and occasional drama director, Amy takes on the production manager role for her brother's play in an effort to mend rifting family relationships.
Sam, Amy's daughter, was a Disney child star who continued her pursuit for fame in a Manhattan TikTok house. Now she's returned home unexpectedly. Her sudden arrival is shrouded in secrets, and Sam refuses to open up to her mother, deciding instead to join her uncle on Block Island for the summer.
