Families are strong enough to survive a little separation — aren't they? For Bettina, Vince, and Aidan it's a testing time. They have to find a way to survive Aunt Marsha for three weeks while their parents take a much-needed vacation. It won't be easy.
Aunt Marsha wants the dog outside. NOW. And the comic books MUST go. And just to cheer them up, how about a nice big slice of kidney pie?!
Aunt Marsha seems very much in control, until a near-tragedy bares her deepest fear, and ends up bringing her closer to the kids than any of them could ever have imagined.
