Matt drives by a motel and spots his wife Lori’s motorcycle. Later, at a birthday dinner for his mom Marion, Lori explains she was visiting a friend who was in town for her dying mother. The anxiety-prone Matt happily buys the story. Marion and her car-mechanic daughter Jess do not. Before this war of mixed signals is over, there’ll be a suicide attempt, a pregnancy of uncertain paternity, multiple sexual awakenings, and some kick-ass blues rock tunes.
