Christy Plunkett is a single mom who’s been through a lot -- alcoholism, drug abuse, a divorce, you name it! After all that, she decides to simmer down and restart her life in Napa, California, working as a waitress and religiously attending Alcoholics Anonymous meetings. Then Christy’s passive-aggressive mother Bonnie who is also a recovering alcoholic and drug addict decides to “work on their relationship”. Christy also has to juggle relationships with her boss/lover, her rebellious teenage kids, and deadbeat ex-husband. Don’t know how she does it, but having a wicked sense of humour probably helps.
