A successful writer laments about her mother and her childhood to a reporter from Time and the subsequent article causes a rift between mother and daughter. Both sides increase their frustration with one another until finally the daughter disinvites the mother from her wedding. Now, the Ya Yas, a secret group of life-long friends to which the mother is a member, decide it's time to act.
