Comedy: Three utterly different New Orleans women have come to help
Malter, a dedicated medical student, revive his life. This includes
his manic sixteen year-old sister, a seductive middle aged actress,
and his alcoholic, duty-driven aunt. His aunt, an eccentric world
traveler, finances his apartment in New Orleans, French Quarter but
preaches the traditional ways of marriage. When Malter defies her, she
edges carelessly into a world of violence. His sister and fiancee try
to stop her before it's too late. A hilarious climax forces Malter to
decide in which world he belongs and bridge the painful gaps in his
relationships. A Christmas reunion unites these odd, yet ordinary,
people in a miracle of uncanny acceptance. Especially powerful roles
for women. One int.set.
