Life can be messy. Melody thought being a young wife was hard, until she became a widow. As she contemplates the proper way to grieve, her mother-in-law is by her side with never-ending, yet well-meaning, expert advice. From dutiful black dresses to inappropriate outbursts, Melody navigates an unchartered course towards understanding what it means to find someone through losing them. Brunstetter’s quirky comedy contemplates how devotion and hope can persevere in the midst of unexpected loss.
