Rebellious teenager Rachel (Lindsay Lohan) screams, swears, drinks and is – in a word – uncontrollable. With her latest car crash, Rachel has broken the final rule in her mom Lilly’s (Felicity Huffman) San Francisco home. With nowhere else to take the impulsive and rambunctious girl, Lilly hauls her daughter to the one place she swore she’d never return… her mother’s Idaho farm.
Matriarch Georgia (Jane Fonda) is not your typical sweet and doting grandmother. She lives her life by a number of unbreakable rules, demanding that anyone she invites into her home do the same. Now saddled with raising Rachel, Georgia’s patience will be put to the test. Rachel’s journey will lead all three women to revelations of buried secrets and an understanding that, no matter what happens, the family ties that bind them will never be broken.
Georgia: “You cut your hair…”
Lilly: “It was getting in the way of my drinking.”
