Synopsis: Dewey Frye is dead and the rest of his family is left to pick up the pieces - that is if they don't kill each other first. Not only does matriarchc Dorothy have to conted with sudden widowhood, but she's also faced with church-committee harpy Ozella Meeks sticking her nose in the family business, Dewey's snake-in-the-grass brother making a grab for her house, and two grown daughters reliving their childhood rivarly.
