Sisters Marie, Cece, and Anita run a small coffee-and-clothes shop on Toronto’s trendy Queen Street West. One evening, their estranged father, Roy, wanders in, in his pyjamas. He is clutching a note explaining that he has Alzheimer’s and admonishing his daughters for abandoning their parent in his time of need. But it quickly becomes clear that Roy was a drunk and a philanderer–and perhaps worse. The women must decide whether his parental sins should be forgiven just because he has now forgotten them.
