Is it ever too late to make up for the past? Laura Bartone looks forward to her annual family reunion with a mixture of excitement and wariness.
Every year, she and her siblings return to their parents' home outside Minneapolis to attend the state fair.
This year, things are different. As soon as she arrives, Laura realizes that something is not right with her sister Caroline.
On their first evening together, Caroline confronts Laura and their brother Steve with devastating allegations about their mother.
Taken aback and incredulous, the siblings are unable to reconcile their perception of their childhood.
A sudden tragedy forces them to face the past, their own culpability and their need for love and forgiveness.
