Ronni Sunshine, the magnetic and distant actress mother of three daughters, came from England as a young woman to make her big break in Hollywood, but she never quite achieves superstar status. She marries and has three daughters, whose stories are told in snippets from their own viewpoints. We see young, teenage, and then adult versions of Nell, the oldest; Meredith, the classic middle child; and Lizzy, the youngest. The damage that Ronni has done to each daughter is laid bare in their stories. In the present, Ronni calls her daughters to her bedside with bad news. The Sunshine girls are each having significant problems in their own lives. Now, because of their mother, they finally are able to see and help one another instead of fighting.
