If you love your family more
than anything, but sometimes dream of changing your name and moving a thousand
miles away, you'll feel right at home with THE O'CONNER GIRLS!
Set in 1997 over the Christmas holidays in snowy Minnesota, Mr. O'Conner has
passed away and his wife, two daughters and their Aunt Margie reunite to
excavate his mountain of personal effects, which includes memorabilia from his
business running a revival movie theater in their small town.
As they sift
through bags and boxes, clues to the quiet World War II veteran's life are
discovered, prompting some heated arguments and some unexpected revelations.
With a dash of Irish wit, some Catholic guilt, old movies, and new romance, the
O'Conner ladies discover that life can begin again.
