Agnes, the youngest of three sisters, returns to her parental home in Sydney, Nova Scotia after a destructive period in her life. Her mother Rose is severely ill, and Agnes wants to settle some painful matters from her past. Her eldest sister Theresa, a pious, bigoted Catholic, has recently been abandoned by her husband for a younger woman; and Louise, the middle child, has shut herself off in her own world in which no emotions exist. Agnes' return home awakens all sorts of forgotten demons from the past. Why does she travel to a nearby village to see Joanie? What attracts her to the young girl? Their mother's health deteriorates and the sisters realise that the period of their common existence is fast coming to an end. But there are so many things that remain unanswered... In the minute gestures that belong with apparently suppressed memories and in the mechanisms of forgiving and understanding within families, Von Carolsfeld displays a great insight into human capacities and weaknesses.
