Life's a messy business.
Rose (AMERICAN HUSTLE’s Amy Adams) wonders where it all went wrong. She used to be the cheerleader who dated the star quarterback, Mac (Steve Zahn, DALLAS BUYER’S CLUB) —she was the girl everyone wanted to be. But Mac married someone else, and now Rose is a single-mother working as a maid. And she’s still seeing Mac. Her sister Norah (Emily Blunt, YOUR SISTER’S SISTER) is a 21 year-old slacker who specializes in avoiding pretty much everything. And then there’s dad Joe (LITTLE MISS SUNSHINE’s Alan Arkin), a dreamer who is always chancing it all on his next get-rich-quick scheme.
Desperate to get her son into a better school, Rose persuades Norah to go into the crime scene clean-up business with her to make some quick cash. In no time, the girls are up to their elbows in murders, suicides and other… specialised situations. As they climb the ranks in a very dirty job, the sisters find a new respect for one another and by building their own improbable business, they open the door to the joys and challenges of being there for one another — no matter what hare-brained scheme dad’s cooked up next.
A bittersweet comedy about respect, love and…clearing up body parts.
