Plot & Details

Violet (Mary Walsh) is approaching her 55th birthday with a particularly pronounced sense of dread. As her parents, grandparents, and husband all died when they reached the magic number, Violet takes to her bed for weeks on end. However, everyone else around her continues to live their life: her gay son Carlos finds himself smitten with an Italian, her daughter Ramona plans her wedding, and her other son Rex chases any woman who crosses his path. Meanwhile, Rusty (Peter MacNeill), a farm manager, pursues the bedridden Violet, and Violet's nasty Uncle Ed and his loathsome daughter scheme to make Violet's valuable country property their own.
