Through every family run memories which bind it together - despite everything.
The Tulls of Baltimore are no exception. Abandoned by her salesman husband, Pearl is left to bring up her three children alone - Cody, a flawed devil, Ezra, a flawed saint, and Jenny, errant and passionate.
Now, as Pearl lies dying, stiffly encased in her pride and solitude, the past is unlocked and with it its secrets.
