Angela, a film editor, returns to her childhood home to persuade her semi-estranged mother Florence, a hoarder, to move into a senior living facility. Florence wants Angela to look for the daughter she gave away for adoption and has enlisted the help of Bob, a mercurial stranger with his own motivations. As the visit unfolds, buried wounds surface, bringing Florence and Angela to a final reckoning, with commentary provided by a talking cat named Blue.
