Plot Synopsis

Based on the novel by Terry McMillian. When irascible matriarch Viola Price learns that her next asthma attack will likely kill her, she is determined to fix her dysfunctional family before she leaves this world -- from her relationship with her husband to the lives of her four children and grandchildren. While on this quest, she must contend with sibling rivalry, teen pregnancy and drug addiction -- and that is only one child. Additionally, her jailbird son needs to learn how to be a better father; her granddaughter is in bigger trouble than her overly defensive daughter is willing to admit; and Viola's now estranged husband needs saving from his scheming younger girlfriend. It's the kind of meddling that they haven't experienced from Viola in decades, and she won't have an easy time making her fractured family whole.
