An iconic feminist leader, elderly, powerful and respected, is mother to three adult daughters in various stages of self-destruction.

Their whole life they've been told they could have it all, but why are their lives falling apart? The choices they've made over their adult years are coming back to haunt them. And how do they start again?

Over the course of an eventful year, the Hennessey children contend with the big struggles of midlife: aging parents, raging teens, crumbling marriages and bodies, new loves, and the choice between playing it safe or taking life-altering risks. And as they inch toward a new definition of happiness, they might even persuade their parents - and themselves - that they're all grown up.

Lydia Hennessey, feminist icon, presides over a family of three adult daughters who should have it all, if only they'd stop self-destructing. Her eldest, Mariana, is throwing away her talent and her marriage. Her middle daughter, Beata, has a hostile teenaged son who just discovered the existence of a father who didn't know about him either. And her youngest, Nina, has returned from a medical mission overseas as a changed woman but won't discuss it. Meanwhile, her niece Zoe is making divorce look like a death-match, while her nephew Zack is grappling with the fallout from his popular television dramedy, based far-too-closely on Lydia herself.

Lydia's relentless optimism and shared wisdom/unsolicited advice aren't enough to make the younger generation pull themselves together, and she's just about ready to wash her hands of them. But first they have to march with her in the biggest political demonstration of her career.
