The Hudson sisters want to collect their share of their father’s estate. To collect their inheritance, Allie, Des, and Cara are obligated to work together and renovate the family’s theatre. They have all combined forces and are living temporarily at their aunt’s home in Hidden Falls, Pennsylvania. Unforeseen problems have put them over budget and recent storm damage has pushed back the completion.
Des is responsible for all the finances surrounding the renovation. Her goal is to finish the project and return to her home in Montana. She views this opportunity as a chance to get to know her half-sister Cara and to rebuild her relationship with Allie. They have been estranged for many years after Des’ success as a child actress. Although they fight often, Allie and Des slowly begin re-connect as secrets they kept from each other are disclosed. At the same time, Des finds an unexpected romance in this unlikely location.
