Besides the question of what to do with grandma, theres the fact that Martas mother and father havent slept together for several months. Oh, and that Martas cousin has been living in Grandmas house, driving Grandmas car and not getting her life straight while Martas been busy at Spellman College in Atlanta struggling to achieve the American Dream. It all adds up to a family war that only an outsider would find funny, which is exactly what director Eileen Morris hopes will happen.
