But Bel is hiding something. Though she won’t talk about it, Sara soon learns that Bel has been through a hellish ordeal. And she has the burn marks to prove it.

Beth's husband won't be joining the family on vacation at the beach this year. Instead, Rick has holed up alone in the backyard shed, and nobody knows exactly what he's up to. While "St. Rick" waits for an epiphany, Beth will have to figure out what to do with herself and their teenage sons. What happens next is both uproarious and bittersweet: a peace march turns violent, her son is caught with drugs, and she embarks on an ambitious road trip that turns into something nearly surreal.
