NORMA: You can’t stay here.
HOPE: Why not?
NORMA: It’s . . . not convenient.
HOPE: Death hardly ever is.
Two sisters are reunited by the death of their mother. Norma thinks Hope is an avaricious, solipsistic, careerist. Hope thinks Norma is a doormat who’s wasted her life. It’s going to be a difficult settling of the estate. And that’s before a body washes up on their beach.
