"...A wildly delightful new musical comedy."
-The Crossville Chronicle
Synopsis: What's a girl to do? Daughter Junie inherits the job of taking over the family dry cleaning business, tending to Dad-who's having a hard time remembering things--and keeping an eye on her her sister Lashley--who's fresh from rehab. Junie's dream of being a country singer takes a hiatus until the town pastor asks the sisters to write and perform personal send-offs for the dearly departed.
