SYNOPSIS:  Juliana, Emma and Nell see Nazis and terrorists around every corner. This is noted as the three sisters gather yet again for the anniversary of their mother’s tragic death on 9/11.  What is the make-up of a life?  Is it reduced to belongings and haphazard memories?  They have basically been sitting Shiva every September 11th terror attacks.  Juliana’s grieving tradition has taken a toll on her marriage.  Emma who is always quick to please anyone is ready for a change.  Things are turned upside down when Nell returns home and no longer wishes to continue the grieving tradition.
