Lavinia is bringing her sisters and mother on a much-needed family vacation. She has planned the week to the smallest detail – antiquing in the afternoons, grilled steaks for dinner, absolutely no cellphones allowed – and if Lavinia gets her way, they will stay forever. What will her sisters have to say? An epic and funny saga about a contemporary Black family from Boston local Kirsten Greenidge (Luck of the Irish), Our Daughters, Like Pillars asks about the ties that bind us to our families. How do sisters hold each other up and hold each other back? Will togetherness split this family apart, or can it bring them together? Kimberly Senior (Sweat, The Niceties) directs.
