The dysfunctional McCallen family has returned to their roots, gathering to sell the home that they built together. Lois, the family’s matriarch, lives in the house with her eccentric daughter, Erin and her bumbling son-in-law, Jim. Stan, the cantankerous patriarch, agrees to come help his ex-wife sell the house, hoping to make amends for the abusive behavior of his past before he loses his secret battle with cancer. The oldest son Mike, the black sheep of the family, hopes to secretly take advantage of the oil he has discovered oil on the back of the property. The youngest son, Haakon, has come to help, hoping to make enough money to start over after his life as a youth pastor and Christian rock band artist has fallen apart. Pulled together after ten years apart, the McCallens are forced to deal with religion, adultery, abuse, forgiveness, deceit, and, most difficult of all, each other.
