Beginning in medias res, the opening scene presents Terry Wolfmeyer and her four daughters, with a friend, Denny Davies, attending a funeral. About three years earlier, a flashback reveals, a heavily intoxicated Terry announces to her daughters Hadley, Andy, Emily and Popeye that their father, Grey, has left the family to be with his secretary in Sweden. Terry continues to drink heavily to cope with her anger and pain, which causes her daughters to resent her. She later shares the news about her husband with her neighbor Denny, a retired baseball player turned radio talk-show host and fellow heavy drinker.

Terry progressively grows close to the man, with whom she eventually begins an intimate relationship. Keen to help where he can, Denny helps Andy to become a production assistant at the radio station where he works. There she meets Shep, Denny’s producer who is a questionable character in his 40s; Andy and Shep begin a relationship which disgusts and angers Terry. Andy does well at the radio station, and soon outgrows the relationship. Meanwhile Popeye, a high school student, pursues a romance with a classmate, but he reveals to her that he’s gay. They instead become close friends, bonding over their respective broken homes.
