After Babe shoots her abusive husband; the three Magrath sisters are back together in their hometown of Hazlehurst, Mississippi for the first time in a decade. Lenny, the caretaker of the sisters’ cantankerous Old Granddaddy, never left. Meg, the middle sister, left home to pursue stardom in Los Angeles, but has, so far, only found happiness at the bottom of a bottle. Babe, the youngest, has just been arrested for murder. Past resentments bubble to the surface and each sister must come to terms with the consequences of her own “crimes of the heart” in ways that enable them to redefine themselves as strong, independent women.
