''After their grandmother’s death, three sisters from very different worlds come together to sift through the belongings and sell the home she left behind.Kathleen, the middle sister, brings home a stranger she met at the local supermarket, disturbing the microcosm of grief and closure the women were building for themselves. A girl, probably from the past, observes everything. Set in a suburb of Toronto, Canada in the early 2000’s, Peonies explores the taboos of modern day families, along with the dynamics between emotional legacy and objects. ''
