When Karen Burnett receives word that 100-year-old Granny Adelaide is fading fast, she and her husband rush to the hospital to say their good-byes. As the end draws near, Granny reveals her dying wish: she wants each member of her fragmented family present at her funeral, as well as at a picnic dinner featuring nostalgic family foods. In her last breaths, she calls upon her granddaughter-in-law, Karen, to carry out this seemingly insurmountable task.
With cherished recipes in hand and a determination to follow through with her promise, Karen sets Granny s plan in motion. Karen s husband, Tom, however, is less than enthusiastic about his grandmother’s meddling. He hasn’t seen his father the man who abandoned Tom his mother, and younger siblings in decades, and the years have done nothing to diminish his bitterness. As the day of the funeral approaches, Tom must decide will he allow himself to be consumed by his anger, or will he embrace the potential for peace?
