THE BATTLEFORDS — Tom, a dentist and a father, fears his own mortality. Cass, a religious mother, might have fallen out of love. Axel, a budding actor, is set to star in an X-rated Peter Pan. Wanda, a loving sister, doesn’t know how to settle on a man. And Maggie, set to marry Russell, is unaware that her sister knows her fiancé a little too well.
There’s even a pastor in the other room. What could go wrong?
