The girls grow up in a family torn by strife and muddied with hidden secrets. Lorry, the middle daughter, looks too much like her mother for her alcoholic father to ever forgive her. Karen, the youngest, plagued by visions of death and the future whispered from unseen lips, battles both her own gift and the unwanted advances of the man who brutalized her sister. Patty, the eldest, addicted to prescription drugs and alcohol, is lost in a world of dreams and eternal sleep.This is the toxic environment Lorry and Karen were born into, and escape seems impossible. Death comes to claim their loved ones and finally the sisters themselves. Lorry collapses from Systemic Lupus Erythematosus and is given less than five years to live -- if she survives the night. Karen is diagnosed with fourth-stage cancer soon after her second child is born. Both prognoses are bleak, and the sisters are faced with only two choices ... live or die.
