Breakfast is well and truly disrupted when Miss Cornelia Scott learns her bid for Regent of the Confederate Daughters Society is under threat. And if that wasn't enough, there's the stubborn reticence of her long-time secretary Grace. Is today the day the secrets between them will finally erupt?
Set in the repressive American South of 1958, the stakes are high as the two women attempt to negotiate the long held silence between them. But can the delicate fiber of their relationship really tolerate the harsh light of the truth?
